ICStation 4X4X4 Light Cube Kit for Arduino UNO

CSTATION 4x4x4 Light Cube kit uses 64 cuboid LED,and controlled by Arduino. Expansion board uses two 74HC595 shift register chips, using eight I/Os can light the 4x4x4 Light Cube,it’s hardware resources needed is less than other 4x4x4 light cubic expansion board(needs 20 I/Os to control).

ICStation 4X4X4 Light Cube Kit for Arduino UNO

1.Circuit Description
The display part of ICSTATION 4x4x4 Light Cube kit consists of 64 cuboid LED,uses two 74HC595shift register chip to control LED anode, the 4 I/O ports of Arduino controls 4 common cathodes of LED.

2.Electrical parameters
Control module:arduino control board
PCB size:61*74mm
LED color:blue
1.You can choose round head or other color’s LED(Our kit is                    5mm blue cuboid LED ).
2.This kit is 4x4x4 light cubic expansion board,without arduino control chip or control module.
3.Provide with arduino library,but there has less display effects,if you need more effects,you need to compile by yourself.

The 0~15 slot of Diagram  is used for inserting  LED anode; D16~D19 slot is used for inserting the LED cathode.
