LED Brightness using PWM via HAL

Lab 109

Lab Objective:

This lab demonstrates the process of controlling LED brightness using PWM via Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) on a PSoC 6 microcontroller.

🔥 Requirements




ModusToolbox™ software v3.0 or later

CY8CKIT-062S2-43012 Infineon Board

Technical Report

🚩 Let start

Create Application


  • Coding: Open the main.c file and add the following code to the main(void) function.

int main(void)
    cy_rslt_t result;
    cyhal_pwm_t pwm_obj;

    /* Initialize the device and board peripherals */
    result = cybsp_init() ;
    if (result != CY_RSLT_SUCCESS){


	/* Initialize PWM on the supplied pin and assign a new clock */
    result = cyhal_pwm_init(&pwm_obj, CYBSP_USER_LED, NULL);

	/* Start the PWM output */
	result = cyhal_pwm_start(&pwm_obj);

		for (int i = 100; i >= 0; i--){
			result = cyhal_pwm_set_duty_cycle(&pwm_obj, i, 10000);

Build the Application

Launching the Application

Note: Before launching the program to the board, make sure that you have already connected the board to the computer through a USB cable.
