Fade in/out LED with Capacitor?

Post by RossW » Sat Oct 27, 2012 12:05 pm

I usually do fade int/outs of LEDs via PWM and PIC micro controllers, but I'm wondering if an electrolytic capacitor placed in series with a LED would accomplish the same thing?

Has anyone done something like this? What value should I shoot for - 10uF, 100uF?
