New Product: 16X PWM Led Fader

We’re happy to introduce a new product, the 16X PWM LED Fader. It lets you control up to 16 channels of high resolution pwm voltage for LEDs or Speed controlled DC motors. It also has a bunch of built in command shortcuts for grouping lights, and making chase and fading sequences.
16x PWM LED Fader


  • 16 channels of voltage control–mix DC motors and LEDs
  • High resolution 16bit* control enables smooth fading, precise color mixing
  • Different voltages can be used on all 16 channels (4 separate banks for simplied wiring)
  • Control via RS232 serial, 5V TTL serial or high speed SPI from arduino or other uCs
  • Fast update / communication–with SPI, all 16 channels can be smoothly swept
  • Easy built-in commands: Group lights, Fade, Chase, Blink , Sunspot
  • Up to 25V and 2A per channel (max power dependent on ambient temperature)

CuriousInventor launched in late 2006 (pre-arduino era!) as a place to enable hobbyists, students, and musicians to create their own technology. We sold open-source kits and tools, and offered numerous guides & videos on things like soldering, metal working, screws, electronics, and more. 

The store is now mostly empty, but we’ve kept the product pages and guides up since they have useful information. Many of our guides and videos still rank on the first page of google searches and have been seen millions of times.
