Driver required for 16x16 neopixel led matrix similar to Adafruit

Hi everyone,

I have a 16x16 neopixel led matrix at home similar to Adafruit's. Each led has its own driver as it says in the instructions of the matrix. I am a beginner Do I need anything in addition to that to make it work with Arduino?

That is, the little 8x8 led matrix uses the MAX7219...

Thank you very much!

Hello,

Eleduino: Do I need anything in addition to that to make it work with Arduino?

You need to download & install either the Neopixel or the FastLED library. FastLED seems to be the favourite at the moment, but if Neopixel seems easier to you, go with that.

Eleduino: That is, the little 8x8 led matrix uses the MAX7219...

At that point you stopped making sense. Do you have a Neopixel matrix or a max7219 matrix?
