Just wondering if anyone knows of a IC that has multiple PWM outputs (ie>=12)? (not the Phillips PCA9530 range)
I know PWM can be generated by software, but the processor I'm using already has to deal with a continuous 250k DMX signal (which sends the PWM information). So the less the processor has to do other stuff the better (let alone software PWM).
I thought perhaps a chip that can do something like this could be used in the control industry? Mabey someone from that field could have some suggestions?)
Next to this I was thinking that using 2 microcontrollers could be the best option- 1 for DMX RX and one for PWM generation. Perhaps getting them to talk to one another on the i2c bus.
What do you people think?
Look foward to some suggestions.
