An Arduino library for controlling a canvas of sets of 8x8 LEDs driven by MAX7219 or MAX7221 controllers. Kits sold for below 10 USD.
This is a plugin for Adafruit's core graphics library GFX, providing basic graphics primitives (points, lines, circles, characters, etc.). So besides this library, you need to download and install Adafruit_GFX, dated Jul 5th, 2013 or more recent.

libraries subfolder if its your first library. Restart the Arduino IDE.
- Double buffering to prevent screen flicker. Check out our example for usage.
- Support for multiple matrix displays, positioned in an arbitrary rectangular layout. You can define both the order as the rotation of each display.
- Uses the SPI library to address the display(s) connected in cascade.
- Low memory footprint.
- Fast, no use of NOOP's.
