RGB LED

Here are two samples how you can use the RGB LED on the SODAQ ONE.

This sketch will let the RGB LED blink in all three colors.

#include "Arduino.h"

void RED() {
  digitalWrite(LED_RED, LOW);
  digitalWrite(LED_GREEN, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(LED_BLUE, HIGH);
}

void GREEN() {
  digitalWrite(LED_RED, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(LED_GREEN, LOW);
  digitalWrite(LED_BLUE, HIGH);
}

void BLUE() {
  digitalWrite(LED_RED, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(LED_GREEN, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(LED_BLUE, LOW);
}

void setup() {
  pinMode(LED_RED, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED_GREEN, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(LED_BLUE, OUTPUT);
}

void loop() {
  RED();
  delay(1000);
  GREEN();
  delay(1000);
  BLUE();
  delay(1000);
}

Fading LED

This sketch will let the red LED fade.

int led = LED_RED;     // the PWM pin the LED is attached to
int brightness = 0;    // how bright the LED is
int fadeAmount = 5;    // how many points to fade the LED by

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {
  // declare pin 9 to be an output:
  pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
}

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
  // set the brightness of pin 9:
  analogWrite(led, brightness);

  // change the brightness for next time through the loop:
  brightness = brightness + fadeAmount;

  // reverse the direction of the fading at the ends of the fade:
  if (brightness == 0 || brightness == 255) {
    fadeAmount = -fadeAmount ;
  }
  // wait for 30 milliseconds to see the dimming effect
  delay(30);
}
