I think the common anode vs common cathode comes into play more when you use RGB matrices.In that case, an 8x8 RGB looks electrically like an 8x24 - if you have one and bought drivers for the other you're kinda screwed.
For non square matrices then you can get a column cathode and column anode.
Thanks, in that big gap is an animation of a multiplexer. What browser are you using? Have you got the quick time extensions?
If you buy 7  segment displays, they come pre-wired one way or 'tother.
Same thing, I believe, just different terminology.
my other suggestion is to include a link to the media along with the embed
QuoteIf you buy 7  segment displays, they come pre-wired one way or 'tother.Very true but the page is about a matrix not a segment (however many) display.QuoteSame thing, I believe, just different terminology.Not quite, if you have say a 6 by 7 matrix it defiantly has a "way round", so if it has 6 in the x direction those 6 can be common anode or cathode depending on if you have column cathode and column anode.With a square matrix you can simply rotate it by 90 degrees.Quotemy other suggestion is to include a link to the media along with the embedGood idea I'll do that tonight thanks.
Too bad it doesn't loop when viewed in YouTube.
