I created something like this: LINK
I use it with a arduino mini pro and two pwm pins and a mosfet ( irf540 ) to drive lestrips.
My question, are those rectifier diode necessary when using ledstrips?
second question, if yes, those ledstrip use more than 5A, does the diode (SB560) need to be higher than the strips pull? (strips pulls 12v and more than 5Amp)
Please advice what is wise to do ...
