Enable & set PWM output on boot

  • Which is the best strategy to enable PWM on boot?

    My aims is to enable & set the pwm to a preconfigured duty cycle as soon as possible during the boot process.

    I'v digged into buildroot but can't figure out how to do that.

    Currently I'm building using an out-of-tree project structure, so that any project specific configuration would be isolated from the F&S's provided buildroot tree.



  • Hello Michele,

    you can have a look at the linux backlight pwm driver


    it uses a pwm and configures it pretty early in the boot process to a default value, configured in the device tree.

    Maybe you could derive a driver, that does something similar for a normal pwm.
