MAX7219 Dot Matrix Display IC

The source current limit for the LEDs is set by connecting a resistor between VCC and the ISET pin. The source current is typically 100 times the current into the ISET pin. The minimum allowed resistor value is 9.5K, which sets the segment current to 40mA. The intensity of the LEDs can also be controlled digitally by writing to the intensity register. The full brightness is set by the resistor between VCC and ISET, and the minimum is 1/32 of the peak current. The intensity is controlled by 16 intervals.

 

The MAX7129 has a 16-bit input register. The first 8 bits, D0 – D7 are the data bits. D8 – D11are the four address bits. D12 – D15 are not used. D15 is the first bit received, i.e. the input is MSB first.

The display test mode turns on all the LEDs in the display to maximum intensity. To enable display mode, write D0 1 to address 0xF. To disable test mode, write D0 0. The digit registers are responsible for each of the 8 digits connected to the display. Each digit D0 – D8 has the address 0x1 to 0x8.

 

Shutdown turns the internal current sources off and puts the chip in a low power state which consumes only 150uA. The chip can be shut down by writing D0 0 at address 0xC.
