I am trying to use the tlc5940, but I get many different suggestions for how to connect it to the arduino when I google. Could someone list proper Arduino - TLC pins please?
Can you post some of those links? In what way are they different?
With respect to the tlc5940 datasheet, what pin/s is/are confusing you?
The way you wire it up depends on what software you are using to drive it. There is no proper way. If you look at the libary examples it has the wiring for that in the start of the code.
Unless I'm just stupid, which I may very well be, there appear to be different pins used for control between these pages. I am attempting to design a board in Eagle using the TLC5940 a Serial Bluetooth module and an MSGEQ7, this will be a shield...

Yes because they all use different software!!!
To control most things there is a degree of flexibility over what pins to use for most signals. Te only things that are fixed to certain pins is when you use specific timers to generate clocks or the SPI output.
Thank you, so, If I use the software in the IDE, I use it's pin descriptions. Could you please look at my other forum post, perhaps you could help there too?
