Here is the issue I have,  I am using a Netduino 1 to control (4) LEDs.

 

I need each LED to flash at a different rate.

 

Below is the code I have created so far.

 

Here is my issue.  The brth() Thread.sleep(x) seems to be controlling everything.  I need to run each of these subs independently so if I adjust brth() it won't affect tLed(), mLed(), or bLed(), or where none of the others affect each other.

The bottom line question. What did I do wrong?

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Oh, forgot to mention the bad news.  I need this working in 2 days.  Yeah.  I just had this idea.  I'm an idiot.

    static OutputPort breath = new OutputPort(Pins.GPIO_PIN_D4, false);

      // write your code here
 
      while (true)
      {
        tLed();
        mLed();
        bLed();
        brth();
      }
    }
 
    public static void tLed()
    {
      // flash Top LED (LED1).  1.5 second cycle 50% duty.
      led1.Write(!led1.Read());
      Thread.Sleep(750);
    }
 
    public static void mLed()
    {
      // flash Middle LED (LED2).  3.7 second cycle 50% duty.
      led2.Write(!led2.Read());
      Thread.Sleep(1850);
    }
 
    public static void bLed()
    {
      // flash Bottom LED (LED3).  2.35 second cycle 50% duty.
      led3.Write(!led3.Read());
      Thread.Sleep(1175);
    }
 
    public static void brth()
    {
      // Trigger Breath Module.  5.1 second cycle 2% duty.
      breath.Write(true);
      Thread.Sleep(100);
      breath.Write(false);
      Thread.Sleep(5000);
    }
  }
}

Thought about using NETMF timers ?

Alternatively, PWM ?
