Average voltage is proportional to duty cycle.
WiringPi and Pulse-Width-Modulation with Raspberry Pi
by Lewis Loflin
YouTube video see Pulse-Width-Modulation with Raspberry Pi.
WiringPi allows one use Arduino type programming with the Raspberry Pi GPIO. Here I'll explore how this is used and how it differs from Arduino.
I'll connect Raspberry Pi to a LED using pulse-width modulation to control intensity.
PWM in Arduino is 8-bit in WiringPi it's 10-bit. If one uses Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 pins 1 and 26 are the same thing - PWM on 1 is also on 26! WiringPi is native to the newest version of Raspbian. One must be root to use. Remember Arduino is 5-volts and RPi is 3.3-volts!
This is written in C and has to be compiled. I suggest using Geany under Linux. Get it "sudo apt-get install geany-plugins".
WiringPi was developed by Gordon Henderson.
