Welcome to the Wiki Page of my Final Project for CSC270: Digital Circuits Systems. The purpose of this project is to create three configurations using various Elegoo Gadgets including a Mega2560 Arduino, Raspberry Pi and a 64-LED matrix. These configurations will each be able to execute a task as detailed in the outline.



The objectives explained in the Introduction will be achieved in 3 parts:

  1. Connect a 64-LED matrix display to a Mega2560 Arduino and program it to display my name, "L I Z E T T E".
  1. Demonstrate a master - worker model by establishing an i2c link between a Raspberry Pi and a Mega2560 Arduino. The Raspberry Pi will send a word to the Arduino. The Arduino will implement a Atbash Cipher on the word, then send it back to the Raspberry Pi.
  1. Retrieve Seattle, Washington's current weather from using a Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi will send it to the Arduino, which will display the data on the 64-LED matrix display.

I will be programming the Raspberry Pi and Arduino in C.


  1. Mega2560 Arduino
  2. Raspberry Pi 3
  3. 64-LED Matrix
  4. Breadboard
  5. Wires
  6. Resistors


Part 1: Connect and Program 64-LED matrix to Arduino

Part 2: i2c link between Raspberry Pi to the Arduino

Part 3: Combining Part 1 and Part 2
