I’ve looked around this forum, but I wasn’t able to get all the information I wanted, therefore I opened this thread…
I wanted to build a circuit that used the Arduino as a DAC, that is, a Digital to Analog Converter to control some lights, using the instructions coming from a computer program (MaxDSP).
The thing is, I am thinking of using a lot of lights… still don’t know the exact number, but a lot
Therefore, I need (I think) a MUX between the Arduino and the lights. With the information I saw in this forum, I got the idea that I should use a 8051 IC as MUX. That is, Using just one OUT of the Arduino, connected to an IN of the 8051, to control all the OUTs of the 8051…
(Stop me now if I’m wrong…)
Is this even possible? if so, will it be possible to control the intensity of the lights, or just ON/OFF?
Thanks in advance to any help given
