I agree with d123.
* Fuctionally you may use the 4067.
* There are dedicated relay driver ICs. They may be controlled with SPI or I2C
* you may use some logic IC like HC138 combined with a led driver like ULNxxxx
There are many, many example circuits here in this forum and even more in the internet.

I want power my led using I-Phone lightening connector.
Have anyone tried to do that or Did you have any suggestion for me?
For example:- Powering a USB fan. Instead of USB ,I want to use I-Phone to power on my led.

A vague description...leads to vague answers..
I assume with "current limiter" you mean someting like a inrush current limiter for transformers.
If this is the case, then it is completely unsuitable for leds.
Please give more details or example circuits, links to datasheets, web pages, discussions, or device names.

I need to rotate for an example x=0XFF for 3 to right.
I cant do that only with >> because that is shifting.
When you want rotate you need to "memory" all bit not to lose such as in case for shifting (i think).

I have never played with the Sitara boards, but an SPI screen is really easy to use.
If you find a way to use GPIO (try to blink a led for example) and a SPI, then you just
wire the SPI to the LCD, the GPIOs to the proper places (usually chip select, Data/Command,
Reset) and you're on the right way.
Usually you can find the initialization p

Can you separate the loops for scanning the matrix display and for moving the characters.
For example, you can create a loop that writes to the entire matrix every mSec (say) but only shift the characters every 100 times ( of whatever) through that loop.

Besides the low current capacity mentioned above, you need to be aware that using some led with color other than red, this effect is even more noticeable because the voltage drop will be greater in other colors. What you can do is to use a transistorized external circuit to amplify this current, like the ULN2003 IC for example.

The base-emitter voltage is a range of voltages so the actual amount of current in the current sink is a wide range.
The transistors probably do not match (but it is better since they are thermally joined) so the currents probably will not match as well as the example.
