I agree w/ weegee in that the MAX7219 would be well suited to drive your 8x8 matrix LED. It would free up your microcontroller from the mundane business of driving the displays, making more time available to process your data. It will require only three output pins from your uC to serially drive any number of displays. For each 8x8 matrix, you'll need one 7219. JB
