Hi all ,
I am new to this forum , first I would like to thank everyone here who share his knowledge.

My next project is designing 24 character scrolling led matrix display ( I would use 8x8 led matrix modules for one character so I need 24 of them ) , I have looked through the forum to understand the logic of scrolling displays I could understand that it is better to scan the rows , to get higher duty cycle. My display should receive the characters from PC through RS232 up to 100 characters as one sentence to be displayed . My problem is I could not understand the logic of scanning and generating the specail data to scroll the sentence from right to left or from left to right or even for short sentences to be fixed . should I need external memory for this or not ? I would be thankfull if someone could explain those issues please ?

I would like to use one of the 18F series PICs .


Thank you in advance


Regards
