Re: Change PWM Frequency ?

I do not understand what you are doing.
You apply 3.3 VDC to a 12 VDC fan and it is running at nominal speed ???
Applying 0.02 V ( pwm 0) does not stop the fan ???
Very strange
Please give more details

Re: Change PWM Frequency ?

Strange thing fan voltage is 12 VDC and at 1023 pwm value you measure only 3.3 VDC this is probably at the output of the pwm terminal.
Did you place a transistor between the pwm terminal at 3.3 VDC and the fan with a 12 VDC power supply ?

Re: Change PWM Frequency ?

Hello
A fan is a quadratic load so even with low voltage the speed is still high.
Please measure the voltage at the fan terminal for different setting from 0 to 1023 and report
Have a nice day
