Method 2:

Before starting the second method, read the first method in previous page. Same 'H' display can be created by another method also. Observe the frames given below. When these frames are also displayed at a high speed, our eye will get an 'H' feeling.

Conclusion:

We had already concluded that current limiting resistors should be connected to the LED matrix to protect from over current. Next is to find, the pins of  LED matrix to which current limiting resistors have to be connected.

If your display works based on method 1, current limiting resistors of 100 Ohm should be connected to the cathode pins (4, 7, 2, 8, 12, 1, 14, 9) of LED matrix if the supply voltage is 5V.

Similarly, if your display works based on method 2, current limiting resistors of 100 Ohm should be connected to the anode pins (16, 15, 11, 3, 10, 5, 6, 13) of LED matrix if the supply voltage is 5V.
