About the PCA9685 driver: can I control the MOSFET gates directly with this?
Will I need anything more except 2 drivers and the 3x mosfets for each strip?
Also, I see the communication protocol is I2C. I'd have in mind controlling the strips through the Serial Monitor.(through a FFT spectrum analyzed data). Will the I2C affect anything?
I also came across a shift register solution using software PWM with a ShiftPWM library but the only tutorial of controlling a led strip/s was on the site of the creator, which is down for some reason.
Divers? You just need 3 mosfet per RGB strip and 1 per UV strip.
I ment that i'll need 2 of this drivers, because my setup requires at least 17 PWM pins. I also don't think that mixing the driver ones with the native arduino ones is a good idea, because they run on different clock and frequency?
Will I be okay if I purchase the chip only <reference> or do I need the board from Adafruit?
