PWM (Pulse Width Modulation)

Pulse width modulation (PWM) is a technique used to control the amount of power delivered to an electronic device. It does this by varying the rate and width of the pulses that are sent to the device. This allows for finer control over the amount of power delivered, which can be helpful in applications where precise levels of power are needed.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About PWM (Pulse Width Modulation)

PWM can regulate a multitude of devices, such as motors or fans. This allows SMBs to save money on energy costs and improve the efficiency of their operations. For example, SMBs can use PWM to control the speed or brightness of an LED. By doing this, they can save energy and extend the life of the LED.
