Max7219 Wiring diagram

Could somebody please share some pictures of the method of wiring the Max7219 chip with the Arduino board? I’ve searched the forums for info and tried hooking it up myself but haven’t had any luck so far.

Regards,

Alex

Thanks Daniel,

I managed to get it working using that link, it just appears I had the resistor in the wrong place.

Do you have any information on daisy-chaining multiple 7219s together to the Arduino? I think i’ll have to hook up 8 for this project…

Regards,

Alex

hello
I have connected 48 of them without problems… so it’s possible
just connect the do to the di on the next max chip and send the clock to everybody

massimo

Maybe these might help
