Made a new life for 8 SQUARE——– by diy

This is the 8 SQUARE.

Arduino compatible matrix LED badge.

Make single matrix LED into double matrix LED. So 8×8 into 8×16. wide screen !

Hack the 8 SQUARE !

No need modification of 8 SQUARE. Make a socket adapter of two LED change into one LED.

This is a schematic of the adapter.

Combine each anodes and cathodes. i.e. A1 – K1, A2 – K2, ….  K1 – A1, K2 – A2, …..

This is actual wiring.

The adapter completion.

Unite with 8 SQUARE.

Sample patterns.

Sample sketch is here.  This sketch is NOT battery-saving yet.

Hack the 8 SQUARE 2 !

Use 0.8” small square LED.

Schematic is same as mentioned above. This is actual wiring.

There are interfere crossing pin headers,

The adapter completion.

Unite with 8 SQUARE.
