Scoreboard Progress

Just a quick update on what I’ve been working on. I’ve had a bit of success getting scoring and the scoreboard playing together (see video). Another feature that you don’t see in the video is that all the switches point value can be set via the C# app that I made.

I’ve added the source below. Keep in mind this is all just hacking at this point. It’s probably not very helpful but it can’t hurt.

The led matrix on the top isn’t broken, I just hooked it up wrong :-/

    • Hi mandy,

      The schematic provided by Maxim is how you would connect it to an AVR as well. If you do another search for the 6953 and AVR you’ll find many more examples (including code) on how to get it to work. I have not used an AVR so I won’t be much help. Sorry!
