Fading LEDs via PWM

An Overview Of The Fading LEDs via PWM
           Fading LED brightness levels is definitely more involved than it might appear from the beginning, but once you understand how it works and what is going on, things become much easier. The system created in this article offered 20 unique levels of brightness for any LED and the brightness increments were linear! Feel free to apply this theory to all kinds of LEDs.

What To Do Now
           Once you know how to control the LED brightness intensity you can move to funner topics like dual and tri-color LEDs, also known as RGB LEDs. RGB (Red-Green-Blue) LEDs can output ANY COLOR of the rainbow with the right combinations of Red-Blue-Green color intensity. Take a look at a color wheel or look at microsoft paint's advanced color feature to see how the r-g-b color intensities mix together to get an idea of how you could use what you've just learned in this article with them.

           Hopefully this article brought to you a new idea of what it means to flash LEDs. There's a whole gigantic world of capability beyond just turned LEDs on and off. The project turned out quite successful and hopefully the two theory sections didn't overload your brain with information.
