im new in galileo gen 2 boards, i've seen some pwm to voltage (0-10v) boards in amazon, ebay, etc, i've read the post about the analogWrite command for arduino, the boards i've seen in the market work with an input of 1-3 KHz, are this board ok to work with the galileo gen 2? can you recommend me an existing board to do this job? the final use is to drive a vfd.
Thank you for your interest in Intel® Galileo Board.
The analogWrite() function helps you modify the output's duty cycle, on a regular period. You'll have to implement a function to set the period or frequency of the PWM in order to obtain the required range (1 kHz - 3 kHz).
I would recommend you to check this article that allows the user to define a set of PWM functions: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/burglar-alarm-using-the-intel-galileo-board https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/burglar-alarm-using-the-intel-galileo-board. You may be able to adapt the code to suit your needs.
I can't explicitly recommend a shield, but if you provide further information regarding the products you have looked at, I may be able to define if they are compatible with the Galileo Board.
Have a nice day.
I was wondering if you still need assistance in this case, and if you could check the suggestion provided.
If you have any other question or update, don't hesitate to contact us.
