Step 1: Setup

For this tutorial we will simply use one LED, any color is OK. Put the Long feet of the LED to Pin 9 on Linkit ONE and the Short one to GND Pin.

Plug the board to computer and open Arduino IDE, then open the Fading examples code just like in the picture

Step 2: Upload the Code and Profit

Once the fading code is open, upload the code to the linkit one board.

when its done you will see the LED start to fade and then turn back on again on a loop.

This PWM tutorial is a basic example for PWM. PWM also could be use to control a servo. I will show it you in the next tutorial.
