I read that the TLC could only handle 120ma of LED per channel. I believed that my 10 LED per channel would pull a total of 200ma (10x20ma), what I didnt consider is multiplexing haha.
The max chips are not designed to work with tlc chips at all in any circuit.
should I go and research some more?
Why not just ask the question "how should i do it"? But be careful to explain what "it" is, i.e. what you and to be able do do with these matrices.Did you realise that if you absolutely do need individual led control, it will either require a lot of circuitry/chips, or less circuitry and the use of multiplexing? Also, multiplexing normally reduces brightness, e.g. 1 in 10 multiplexing results in a display that is one tenth as bright. Fortunately, the eye does not have a linear response to brightness, so it would only look perhaps one quarter as bright.
