Description: The PicoBuck LED Driver is an economical and easy to use driver that will allow you to control and blend three different LEDs on three different channels. Power in supplied to the PicoBuck with a wide range of input voltages (6v to 20v) connected to the VIN header and three inputs for each driver channel (labeled IN1, IN2, and IN3) driven with standard 3.3v or 5v logic.
This PicoBuck supports PWM control so long as the signal is above a minimum of ~1.5V and each LED is driven to ~350mA.
Note: If you’re going to use screw terminals, this board uses two different sizes. Check the related products for both sizes you’ll need.
Note: The PicoBuck LED Driver was made in collaboration with Ethan Zonca. A portion of each sale is given back to him.

Only thing that would be nicer is if it didn’t turn on while controller is off

Hello, It appears that we received an email from you on April 15, and replied to you the same day. We tried to answer all of your questions in that email. That’s the last we heard from you. I’m sorry you were not satisfied with our technician’s response.
I use the PicoBuck LED driver with the high power LEDs on my 4WD robot and seems to be the right fit for it. I plan to use the PWM feature in the future. AC/.
