arcade button LED

by craigerincali on Tue Jan 05, 2021 1:29 pm

Hi there,

I am just wondering about the 30mm LED arcade buttons...in the demonstration video about the buttons, the button is attached to 5v to demonstrate the LED working and it flashes, but when I do that it is only on, no flashing...are you using code on the arduino, that it is getting the 5v from, to cause it to flash or using some sort of unseen timer circuit (ie. 555) ??? or are they designed to flash and mine just doesn't ???

thanks,

craig

As Limor mentions in the video, she has the button LED being driven by a PWM signal from the Arduino.
