I’ve been planning a handwired build for quite some time, and we’re now in the final stages (just waiting on plates and a couple loose ends!) and I had a couple questions about row/column wiring. A diagram for my layout is shown below:
With this current layout, it would be 17 rows and 5 columns. That would require 22 pins on a microcontroller. I still haven’t quite picked out a microcontroller, (though, the Teensy 2.0 is probably my biggest consideration at the time) and I was wondering if:
A: there was a different, better way to wire
and B: what microcontroller you’d recommend for wiring as such.
I plan to use a 24wire ribbon cable and a DIP connector to solder right onto whatever microcontroller works. If you guys have any ideas to improve my wiring, below is a diagram with no wires on it.
Thanks guys! Any help is greatly appreciated.
