I want to drive a 5 metre strip of 300 5050 SMD LEDs. It comes with a 5A power supply but I don't know what the rating are for these LEDs.
The thing is I want to be able to change the voltage using the Arduino from 1v <> 12volt for dimming effect.
What kind of driver should I build for that? And would anybody have a schematic or something that's already available on eBay or similar :)
I am bit of a newb in the prototyping area-but have good skills; and all I need is some guidance in the correct way.
EDIT Thanks for the great answers- I did find this though.
Guess whats going to be taken apart before it even turned on.. Is this a PWN dimmer? or just a simple Voltage adjuster?
Is it possible to control/replace or build on top of the analogue potentiometer using the arduino? Like for if i turn it on it fades to 100% over a period of 1second for example..
