Oops! I forgot to replace this term with 'output channel'. Thanks for
catching this.

Driver uses 'ramp_table[]' for this purpose. Could you describe it in
more details?

Well, it's not a big deal when turn off the LED. However, our silicon
designer recommended brightness update should be done prior to enabling
LED bank. Let me share some block diagram.

[I2C logic] - [brightness control] - [control bank] - [output channel]

If control bank is enabled first, then previous brightness value in
register can be used instead of new updated brightness. So brightness
update should be done first.

Good to hear that, it's the most simplest work for the device ;)
Let me update the driver. Thanks!

Best regards,
Milo
