I've looked in the forums and for other on line documentation. I just need a few simple answers. What is the resolution of the PWM the pi3 is capable of (%DC)? How many pins on the header are PWM capable?
Hermann thanks for your reply. It sounds like the frequency range is impressive, however I'm particularly in the duty cycle - you know the ratio of the time high to time low for each cycle. Can it be as low as 1% even with the software outputs or even <1%?
The pigpio software PWM defaults are 800 Hz with 250 steps (internally mapped to 0-255). If you lower the frequency you get more resolution. If you higher the frequency you get less resolution. E.g. at 8000 Hz there are 25 steps, at 200 Hz there are 1000 steps.
The pigpio hardware PWM defaults are 250 million / frequency steps.
