|Project: ledmatrix clock|
|Skills||python c (msp430 firmware)|
|Summary||an awesome clock on a matrix|
Is it a television? No! it´s a ledmatrix clock ;)
In this project, I took a ledmatrix without controller and I have made a controller for it with a msp430 launchpad and a msp430g2553 Micro-controller.
How it works
klok.py is a python script what transfer the time to the ledmatrix over "rs232/uart"
The msp430g2553 decode the time, and display it by bitbanging the led´s on one row by SPI. The rows are also bitbanged so the whole matrix is filled with blinking leds ;) .
