I'm not looking for specific components, I'm just trying to figure out the general process of home something gets displayed to an RGB LED matrix.
For example for a NxN single color matrix, the controller has to strobe line by line, so the brightness is cut by 10 right?
Cut by 'N', yes.
What about if you wanted a fractional color (half green, full red) for example, would you have to further sub strobe every line to "dim" colors? Like maybe 10 cycles per line allowing for increments of 1/10th brightness for each color?
If the time on each line is 1 millisecond (for example), the LED is switched on for a fraction of that millisecond.
The you move to the next line and repeat.
