username 198 Posted December 11, 2011 Share Posted December 11, 2011 So... i've always wanted to make a pretty LED Fader and be able to implement then on my circuits. By LED fader I mean this: Now you could acourse use the launchpad but with a 16Mhz MCU I would think i'd be a waste of IO and processing power. Consequently i've been trying to look for a simple hardware alternative. I created this circuit this weekend that uses a single supply lm358. Works like a charm but still requires alot of components. Does anyone know of an IC that is specifically meant for this? I search digikey for led driver and only get about 20k results. I supppose I might be able to mimize the components if I use a 555 timmer? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
