This is one of my first projects with a phidget and I may be in over my head.
I want to control a 64 LED dot matrix using two 74HC164 shift registers- one on the rows, the other on the columns.
Right now, though, I can't get the shift registers to do anything at all! I might not be understanding fundamentally how they work, but just to test my code I tried to run some LEDs connected directly to each output pin of the shift register. I give it a code like this:
if a(1,i)==1 %sets active columns
where dc1 is the data channel and cc is the clock channel, and a is just a vector of 1s and 0s. I just want to be able to illuminate the LEDs, what am I doing wrong?
