    I'd like to control an 8x8 led matrix from my raspberry pi.
    The schematic of the led matrix is attached.
    Do I need to buy another board to control it or can I somehow do it with gpio on raspberry pi? Or can I buy a few components and put them on a breadboard to control the led matrix through pi.

    I'd like to display some text or make some pattern by writing a program (c, perl, etc).
