LED Scrolling message Display using 8051

This Project is a scrolling LED matrix display project using 8051 (AT89S52) controller and 24C16 EEPROM. This LED matrix project is designed to work flexibly to handle 1x18 matrices of 8x8 LEDs or 1 to 29 matrices of 5x7 LEDs. The total matrices support can go higher if a controller with higher RAM is used. You do not need to do any change in the program for that. There is also a software provided to upload your message from PC to EEPROM.

This project is submitted by Pratik Suthar of Government Engineering Collage, Dahod (Gujrat). I really want to thank him for his contribution to Rickey's World.

Now a working video of the project:

@samarnath dev, check LED Dot Matrix Display Tutorial Package. It has sample codes for controlling basic displays displays.

Please i tried running the design on proteus, but displaying the message was impossible, Please how do i use d virtual terminal on proteus for test?
10 Apr 2015: 18:21 PM
@Mstein, Virtual terminal is provided in the Proteus. Please post in forum if you need detailed help. I cannot post the complete solution in comments area.

Could you please help me how to change the display text in the proteus simulation file. It displays "This is just the beginnng". how to change it?

@gsdvprasad, post your question in forum.

So I tried it out, and it works fine. The sample code shows on a 4*6 format, but with a little adjustment, I got it on 5*7 display perfectly. I also incorporated a source driver in place of d PNP transistors, and it gave a very bright display, since I used leds to build my matrix. The matrix was 80*7 and it works fine. Thank you guys..you got a wonderful forum here..

@mstein, Can you please share back your design with us? It may be helpful for other? Please send me details on contact[at]rickeyworld[dot]info

I need ur help urgently.i am trying to make pc controlled led scrolling display using 8051.when i am trying to generate hex file of the code that is given by pratik suthar.it gives the error
Target not created
I am using keil uvision4 software.

Even i have tried to burn the given hex file that is atteched with the code but my led are not glowing.
Pls help me sir .i struck in this problem from last month and till now i am not able to short out the problem.
