matrix and max7219

(1/2) > >>

alex:
being breif i want to run a couple of rgb matrix`s using max 7219 no it is not the best on market, but would it be possible to run three 7219`s
simultaneously using three rx/tx ports from a mega board, my train of thought being a dived matrix into 4 sections and divide into 3 of above  i`m just finding my way.

thanks in advance

alex

barragan:
What do you plan to use the serial lines for?

alex:
it was to drive the 7219`s one for each colour intially, but with hind sight the programm would be to complex,am reconsiderirng using quad gates and mosfet, for current this maybe simplify program,as a matter of intrest is it possible to run three serial line`s in one program or would they conflict??

alex

barragan:
they can be run in the same program, no problem, but those chip do not use Serial as such, they can use any pins with their protocol

alex:
as the expression goes "if you dont ask you dont learn"
 did not realise that they did not rely on serial, but i dont think that will aid the project anyway.

thanks
alex
