DMCC Mk.5 does LED Lights!!

We do lights!!  Here we have two banks of LED lights controlled by the DMCC Mk.5 turning on and off using a PWM control program on the Beaglebone black.


We were prompted to do this quick breadboard wiring when someone asked us if we could control a long string of LED lights.  Our estimate based upon the current draw from this circuit is that we could control 800 LEDs (two sets of 400 LEDs) on a single DMCC (Dual Motor Controller Cape) board.
