A bug for PWM_HZ command?
« on: June 21, 2018, 05:26:44 PM »

Hello, I am trying to modify the pulse width modulation (PWM) frequency. I have read the programming datasheet for FT81x guide from http://brtchip.com/wp-content/uploads/Support/Documentation/Programming_Guides/ICs/EVE/FT81X_Series_Programmer_Guide.pdf  on page 82;

Code: [Select]
These bits define the backlight PWM output frequency in HZ. The default is
250 Hz after reset. The valid frequency is from 250Hz to 10000Hz.

I try to change the default frequency to 10000Hz, but I do not see any change, this I want to do to decrease the noise generated by the backlight, it is modulated with the audio output.

It is possible to modify this frequency, with solfware, it is not possible. A bug?

Best regards. Tomás.

The REG_PWM_HZ register is to correct register to write to alter the frequency of the backlight.

Can you show me how you are writing the register within your code?
