Raspberry Pi wiring and coding for AW9523

by cthulou on Fri Mar 19, 2021 12:07 am

Hi! There is a terrific tutorial for the AW9523 for Arduino, but I am hoping to get an example of using this fine product with my Raspberry Pi Zero.
In short, I want to use this board to power around 4 LEDs so I don't blow up my Pi.
I want to have full PWM color control over 3 LEDs and brightness for a white LED.
2 of the LEDs will be wired together (eyes for a robot), 1 will be a status light for the top of the head, and another will be a light for the web camera in case things get too dark.

To this end, I am hoping to find a sample circuit/code that can help me learn how to use this board without burning anything out.
I have searched google and not found anything exactly like what I am looking for.

Please forgive any noob posting errors, and feel free to let me know how to correct these errors going fwd. I expect I'll be here a lot in the coming years!
Extremely grateful for any and all help,

Lou
