How to stagger the PWMs

Question asked by Shoumin Liu on Jul 23, 2015

We use a large number of PWMs on a K10DX to control the dimming levels of LEDs. As these PWMs are generated by one timer module, it turns out that they are in phase when switching the LEDs on or off. This causes some fluctuation in instantaneous current draw. We are wondering if there is a way to stagger the PWMs so that there are phase differences between them. In this way, they will not be on or off at the same time. The attached image illustrates the idea. Is this achievable by programming the time module appropriately? Thank you for your help.
