This 8x8 LED Dot Matrix is an array of 64 total LED lights, arranged in 8 columns and 8 rows, designed to meets strict ROHS standard. It is built intelligently with only 16 pins to minimize the amount of digital outputs needed from microprocessors, and works by connecting current through the rows and the ground through the columns – thus causing the LED where the row and column meet to light up. This, in conjunction with multiplexing at a high frequency, can provide a clear display of almost any kind of pixelated 8x8 image.

General Uses and Applications
These 8x8 Dot Matrix displays are most commonly used to present scrolling text or numerical values like temperatures or small messages. They can also be installed in parallel and utilized together, which may require some extra programming and effort, but can double the size of the display.
This is also one of our most affordable displays, and is surprisingly versatile due to the open-ended nature - allowing you to include them in a wide range of different projects.
