LED panel


This project was my first attempt at building something with the Pico. It was a great introduction to some of the more lower level aspects of programming ARM Cortex-based micro-controllers and I got to see how PWM works under the hood.

I built this during the third (I think?) lockdown towards the end of Lent term, when the motivation begins to fade and the procrastination leprechauns come out :-).

A preview of what I built is below:


I’ve written two useful journal entries on the topics covered here. The first is my guide to PWM on the Pico and the second is my first steps with the Pico, which contains some useful information on the ADC.
