Hello:

I need to control 70 leds. One at a time.
Can you help me? what materials do I need for this?
thank you very much.

5 x "4 TO 16 LINE DECODER/DEMULTIPLEXERr" like the 74154 (80 pins)
1 x "3 TO 8 LINE DECODER" like the 74138 (to enable one of the 5 16-bit decoders)

7 data pins to address the two levels of selector.

If you hook a PWM line to one of the gate inputs on the 74154's you can fade each LED in and out.

Or an 8x8 matrix driver chip and an 8-bit shift register for the last few LEDs.
Or a 5x7 matrix driver chip like the MAX6953, can do 4 x 35 LEDs.

Thank you very much.

Have you or know any good tutorial to do this?.


mowcius

or 2x M5451 chips - can drive 35 LEDs each.

The CC-Shield uses two of them so you could use the code from that as a starting point:
