8] potientiometer 4k7
9] decoupling capacitors [104]
10] on\off switch
11] 8x BC547
12] 8x 1k res.
13] 5x 10k res.
14] 4v battery
15] ti launchpad
16] ti Code Composer Studio

Step 2: Layout

then you have to select the positioning of your 8x8 led matrix and all other components according to your PCB...

Step 3: Building the 8x8 med matrix

you can get instructions how to build an LED matrix on many pages on the internet, here is the process, by which i made it....

Step 4: Making connections

its the hardest part of building the hardware, and you must be careful about making the exact same connections as i made, otherwise the code wont work on it, i have uploaded an eagle's schematic file, with the diagram which shows the essential connections which are to be made EXACTLY the same way...

some important connections of IC 74595

pin10-vcc-10k

pin9-cascade data, pin 14 74595 or open if its the last IC in cascade

pin11-shift clock-pin7 msp

pin12-latch clock -pin 6 msp

pin13 - gnd-10k

pin14 - data - msp15 or 74595-pin9

pin15- data bit 0

burn the code into MSP430G2553 by ti's launchpad....
here is its photo getting coded....i have attached the main file with it...
