I cannot help you any further, as i don't have this board, as a bit of help your program looks fine. I checked the schematics for the correct pin, i noticed that all 3 pwm pins are connected to the LCD not sure if that's a clue. May be some one else can help. Good Luck.

Hi Cagatay,

there is currently a bug in PwmOut for Silicon Labs targets that prevents it from functioning. This bug has already been fixed, and the fix should propagate to mbed-src by tomorrow.

Expect it to show up in mbed proper by the next release, which is due next week Tuesday.

Kind regards, Steven Cooreman
