DIP IC Max7219


SKU: 000047 Categories: , Tags: , , ,


The MAX7219 is a versatile integrated circuit (IC) designed to simplify the control and management of LED displays, specifically 7-segment, 14-segment, or dot matrix displays. It is widely used in a variety of electronic projects and applications where precise and multiplexed LED control is required.

Key Features:

Multiple Digit Control: The MAX7219 IC can control up to eight digits of 7-segment or 8-digit of 14-segment displays, making it suitable for numeric, alphanumeric, or symbol-based displays.

Serial Interface: It communicates with microcontrollers and other devices using a simple, daisy-chained serial interface, reducing the number of pins required for connection.

Brightness Control: The IC allows for brightness adjustment through its integrated pulse-width modulation (PWM) control, enabling fine-tuning of the LED display’s luminance.

Multiplexing: The MAX7219 performs multiplexing, allowing you to display multiple digits or characters sequentially at a high refresh rate.

Scan Limiting: It supports scan limiting to optimize the power consumption and control the number of digits displayed at any given time.

Segment Control: You can control individual segments, making it suitable for applications that require custom character creation or control.

Display Blanking: It includes display blanking for turning off the entire display, useful for power-saving or dimming the display.

Cascadable: Multiple MAX7219 ICs can be daisy-chained for controlling larger arrays of LED displays, providing scalability.

Low Power Consumption: The IC is designed for efficient power management, making it suitable for battery-operated applications.


Digital Clocks and Timers: Commonly used for displaying time, countdowns, and alarms.
Scoreboards and Counters: Ideal for sports scoreboards, game counters, and numeric displays.
Industrial and Measurement Instruments: Used for showing measurements, readings, and control parameters.
Information Displays: Applicable for information boards, public transportation displays, and notifications.
DIY Electronics Projects: A fundamental component for makers and hobbyists in various electronics projects.
The MAX7219 LED display driver IC simplifies the control and management of LED displays, making it a valuable component for a wide range of electronic projects and applications. Its serial interface, multiple digit control, and flexibility in segment control and brightness adjustment make it a go-to choice for numeric and symbol-based displays.
