The above code is not working.
In the code ledc_timer_set(LEDC_HIGH_SPEED_MODE, LEDC_TIMER_0, divider, bit_width, LEDC_REF_TICK); is not able to configure LEDC_TIMER_0.
ledc_timer_config_t since it is not used the timer is not configured.
if I put ledc_get_freq it is returning 250hz always.
what can be the issue please help.
I want to generate PWM at 0.5hz

This program is not working for any frequency since the time is not set.
I tried to check it on the oscilloscope but nothing at the output.
