4.4 versus 4.3 differences in fade/intensity, Dan?


Recommended Posts

I've been investigating why my LOR 1602 V7 board with 4.4 firmware is having so much trouble fading my LED strands, while my V5 boards with 4.3 firmware are just fine. I had kind of put this project 'on the shelf' for the moment, and was checking out some terminator/snubber details for the PC folks, and noticed that the two waveforms don't look the same on each box.

First, here's the V5 4.3 firmware box with a single strand of blue C6 LED's (50 count, CDI 2009 models), with no terminator. This is a 40% intensity setting using the hardware utility console. This box works just fine.


Then I did the same exact thing with the V7 4.4 firmware box, plugged into the same outlet, with the same strand of lights. Here is what it looks like:

Notice that curving waveform as it approaches zero actually overshoots zero?

I don't remember the intensity setting I had for this picture of the 4.4 firmware unit, but it was less than 40%.


See the overshoot? Just playing around with my V5 4.3 firmware unit I could never get it to overshoot, or look anything like this.

Any ideas as to what the difference is?
