ATtiny/POV Shield

A POV display shield for the Proto 0.03 board. The ICSP headers allow easy uploads of new words in the display.

POV Shield 0.01

A simple test with some recycled parts on a piece of stripboard. Five smd leds from an old TV remote, enabling a way to expose the bottom of the stripboard with smd leds.

List of materials

Item Pieces
Stripboard 8x20 holes
Led 5x
100 Ohm Resistor * 1x
Maleheaders 2x4
Wire various lenghts

* brown black brown

Breadboard setup

The example below is a piece of perfboard. It is easier to use stripboard of the same dimensions and cut a breakline straight throught the middle.

Connect all the Cathode (-) together throught the 100 Ohm resistor with GND.

Leave the Anodes separated and connect these like below:
