It is a single LED driver.  It can drive a Torch white LED or IR LED indefinitely or if the driver
is programmed to strobe mode the driver will drive the configured LED for the flash timeout specified.

Basically a flash and a flash light. IR or White LED.

Timeout in the spreadsheet is ms I will update this example and code
Current in the spreadsheet is mA I will update this example and code

If the torch LED and strobe LED are the same LED how do I expose them both to the user.
It is up to consumer to configure the required interfaces they want to expose to the filesystem.

Maybe they don't want the strobe feature and just want LED on/off and switch between IR and White.

The IR is driven via a different output pin.
