I currently have a fully functioning piece of code that steps through 8 LEDs via 8 digital pins. I'd love to take the leap and go up to 64 LEDs but would like to avoid picking up a seeeduino mega board and instead use my current board and save some money.
I'm familiar with 4017 chips and was wondering if it was possible to send each of the arduino's 8 digital pins to their own 4017 chip. I'm just trying to sort out whether that is or isn't feasible at this point and any insight would be great. Thanks.
