This is an example for our Adafruit 16-channel PWM & Servo driver
PWM test - this will drive 16 PWMs in a 'wave'
Pick one up today in the adafruit shop!
These drivers use I2C to communicate, 2 pins are required to
Adafruit invests time and resources providing this open source code,
please support Adafruit and open-source hardware by purchasing
products from Adafruit!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
