I believe in order to control large amounts of LEDS...
you need to 'multiplex'? or use shift registers (or something?)
Is there any BASIC tutorials or articles on getting into this?
I am 'not' looking for advanced articles.. where they throw out chip acronyms used..etc.. (as that would mean nothing to me)
simple parts lists.. and an overview of the topic and implementation wold be great!
Is there a limit of the number of LEDS you can individually control/address? (is this based on the shift register chip of choice?)
is multiplexing the 'word/verb' of this action? (driving multiple leds) and shift register is a physical component to be used 'in' multiplexing?
if I had say 3 leds I wanted to control with ONE pin.. where does one start? (I know you can use 3 separate pins....but wanted to use 3 leds to keep confusion low when talking about multiplexing on one pin)
also Im assuming that if one wanted to 'multiplex' with RGB leds..you would use 3 pwm pins..
