Hey guys, I am looking for a quick solution.. I have an LED strip that is 12v, I want to be able to fade the brightness on it with the arduino. I dont have time to order mosfets or transistors.
I guess my question is, can you just use a motor controller to output up to 12v to a simple LED strip? non RGB?
Seems to me it should work.. but I am a noob in just about all of this :(

Yes, sure. One output goes to strip cathode and anode to +12V. Depends on chip you have , may be you need more than 12V to compensate saturation voltage, up to 13 - 14 V
