LoL Shield Random LEDs flashing example

by shedboy71

The LoL Shield is a charlieplexed LED matrix for the Arduino. The LEDs are individually addressable, so you can use it to display anything in a 9×14 grid. Scroll text, play games, display images, or anything else you want to do. It comes as a kit or an assembled board, teher are also various colour options and also an SMD example available.

The kit has 126 LEDs in total

Code

You will need to install the library for the LOL Shield – https://github.com/jprodgers/LoLshield

#include <avr/pgmspace.h>
#include <Charliplexing.h>
 
#define FREQ 30
//this is the LED matrix (14 by 9)
byte LOLARRAY[14][9];
 
//sets values
void set(int x, int y, int v)
{
LOLARRAY[x][y] = v;
LedSign::Set(x, y, v);
}
 
// returns random bit 0 or 1 baesd on value
int randBit()
{
int v = random(100);
return (v < FREQ) ? 1 : 0;
}
 
void randPattern(int lines = 9)
{
for (int i = 0; i < 14; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < lines; j++)
{
set(i,j,randBit());
}
}
}
 
void setup()
{
LedSign::Init();
randomSeed(analogRead(0));
}
 
void loop()
{
randPattern();
delay(1000);
}
