Apologies in advance for probably missing a lot of things. I'm pretty new to electronics.
I'm building a 96(12X8) led (monochrome ultra bright, white) multiplexed array, driven by an Arduino nano. Any one of the leds can be on at a given time.
- I tested one of the LED's and when configured and ran though Arduino's blink program and it works fine and the LED is lit bright.
- Next i had to try out the same LED with a 595, so i used this tutorial for reference.
- I accordingly hook up the LED and it's working fine, but the brightness is significantly low.
And that brings me to the question, whether i should charlieplex and build the whole network, or is there a way to improve the LED brightness while using 595's?
Thanks for your comments and suggestions.
