Topic: Need help: How to make my own 24x16 LED Matrix display (Read 6 times) previous topic - next topic


I built my first wordclock using components ordered from Mouser and the final cost was about $120. If I had thought to ordered the components from eBay I would have save about $30. There is a lot of work in soldering LED matrix boards and because I built mine on stripboard a lot more track cutting and wire soldering. I have built 2x wordclocks now but don't intend on doing any more soon.


I would recommend looking on instructables for LED Matrix display.  There are numerous amounts of instructables on that very topic, at least last I checked.

I'd really like it to be at least 16 pixels in height.

Even if you wire them as 8 rows of 48 you can place them as 16 rows of 24.

That's the exact display board I'm trying to create, in monochrome of course

The schematic is publicly available, and it uses the HT1632C (which you can buy on ebay for $4 or so).
