I have been scouring the deepest reaches of the internet for about a week trying to find a working example for using the TLC5940 16-channel PWM driver chip for dimming LED strips, but without any luck. Most of the examples are either incomplete (missing the wiring diagram) or just don't work. Here's a few examples that I couldn't get to work:
All of these are old, so I'm fairly certain they target .NETMF 4.1. The first one didn't work (http://forums.netdui...c/4123-tlc5940/) because it uses PWM.SetPulse from .NETMF 4.1 which I tried to convert the code to 4.2, but it's still not working.
Here is my request: Can someone help me out with a program that simply fades an LED from 0 to full brightness and back to 0, and then repeats, using the TLC5940?
Once I can get a single LED to PWM using the TLC5940, the rest of the work is already done and I have the high-power drivers for the LED strips already built. Thanks for the help.
