Work is to be completed individually.

Pulse Width Modulation

Plug your mbed into the mbed application board, being careful to correctly align the pins on the inner headers with proper orientation.

Following the examples given in the textbook and on the website, construct a program that reads analog values from the two potentiometers, (analog inputs on pins 19 and 20,) and uses those values to alter the colors of the RGB LED, (PWM outputs on pins 23 [red], 24 [green] and 25 [blue].)


When the joystick center button is pushed (digital input on pin 15,) your mbed should play a tune on the speaker (PWM output on pin 26.) Example frequency tables and song data are included at the end of chapter 4.

Optional Enhancements

Once you have the required functionality in place, here are some possible extensions you could consider:
