About this project

This is a step-by-step guide that I have created for beginners and arduiNOOBS like me.

In this tutorial, we would be discussing some pretty basic knowledge about the 16-channel PWM LED Driver called TLC5940.

Learn how to daisy-chain them together and use some code from a TLC5940 Library.
