Just to show my child how it works, in 10min build a Hydra LED driver …
What you need ?
3 MOSFET N-channel (SP36N or equivalent), 3 resistors (100-120ohm), P socket (3 PWM channel) and obviously a LED stripe (12V is ok).
I use a 5mt strip, that drain more or less 12V/1,5A full illuminated.
Gadgeteer is going to have really fun … 8)
