Hello. I am pretty new to electronics but have slowly been getting my head around everything.
I was hoping that someone may be able to give me some advice regarding circuit design. I am planning on constructing a high powered LED lighting system for my new marine aquarium. The high end LED units are still really expensive and so I thought I would construct my own for a lot cheaper. I understand the need for LED drivers to power these types of LEDs. But what I want to be able to do is control the brightness of the LEDs using a microcontroller to emulate sunrise/midday/sunset and of course moon light. But I am uncertain how you go about interfacing a LED driver to a microcontroller.
Does anyone know of any useful tutorials or have any advice on how I go about completing this task?
Thanks in advance,
