recommendations for attiny or arduino newb?
i figured this would be the best place to post this due to the large amount of programmers..
long story short, i have this led project that requires pwm. i have done a lot of led projects, all of them specifically avoiding pwm because i can not stand flicker. this project cannot avoid it, so i need to approach it head-on. i need a pwm solution that can pwm a led in what i believe to be the 500+hz range to avoid visible flicker.
at this moment, i have a attiny13a and a arduino mega 2560 on hand(as well as a "getting started with arduino" book).
while i understand that they are different programming environments, what do i need to learn to use and program either?
i started at this thread, but by page 2 my head is starting to spin with all the words. i want to order some parts so i can attempt to program while reading so that the words are more then just words, but don't have a clue where to start.
