Controlling LED Brightness with PWM & Mixing Colors with RGB LEDs

April 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We learned how to turn an LED on and off but what if you want a level of brightness in between? We’ll be using the Arduino’s PWM pins and learn a new function for controlling the brightness of LEDs. Then we’ll explore RGB LEDs which allow you to mix different levels of red, green and blue to create a nearly endless array of colors.


LESSON CONTENT:

  1. Introduction to PWM (pulse width modulation) pins
  2. How PWM works to produce voltages in between 0 & 5
  3. Using the analogWrite function to control the brightness of an LED
  4. Connect a common cathode RGB LED
  5. Using the R, G, and B channels to create custom colors
  6. Introduction to Conditional Statements
  7. Assignment

MATERIALS:

You’ll be able to follow along and build all the projects featured in this course with the ELEGOO UNO Project Super Starter Kit.
