32×32 bit Pong

Connecting everything with everything… Here a computer playing Pong with itself. The motorfaders from the Behringer BCF2000 can either used as user-input or taken over by the PC.

  3. The used boards were equipped with driver electronics. Connection details were posted on – but these are only valid for the given boards with drivers. It is probably not very hard to make a driver schematic, only a lot of work. The boards that I used are configured in 16 x 32. They have eight tiles of 8×8 LED’s They use eight big BDX34C POWER darlingtons (one per row) and eight MIC5821BN drivers. These drivers need to go at the low-side (they can sink current). A 74HC138 mux is used to decode eight lines, two 74HC244 buffers latch these outputs into row selection. Collumn data is being clocked in into the MIC5821 drivers (every tyle has one), a row is selected using the 74HC138 input and latch signal for either one of the 244 buffers. More elaborate reverse-engineering can be found on and

  4. Found your blog via a friend who saw your Pong on Hack n Mod . . . nice variety of stuff here!

    I love all things LED, Arduino, Processing, etc., as well.

    Cheers from Canada,
