I need a design hint for a adjustable current sink or current source.
I want to control the current through a solenoid (hydraulic control). The current must be adjustable by a voltage (DAC). It should be a closed loop control. The current is in the range from 50mA to 1500mA. The supply voltage is 28V. It should be a switched mode Design.

Use the PC port to pulse the led.
Control the mark:space ratio to control the brightness
Use the PC port with a D to A converter (but check that the converter can source/sink the required current first).

For Port 0 and 2 in Bus Mode when addressing external memory, you can count on 8mA source at a minimum of 2,4v output.
If you want to deliver outside more than 8 mA you can be sure that the output voltage will significant decrease.

At 8051 the ports don't have a "direction" register like other microcontrollers. If you write 1 at the port line it's the same as setting the port as output in high state or set as input (except port 0). The port have a weak pull up that will source current when it's pulled low by a external load like a resistor connected to ground or a transistor

Some kind of integration will always be needed.
If you cannot use an RC integrator, use a DAC and a up/down counter.
As your input signal is high, count upwards high frequency pulses. When the input signal is low, count downwards. The output of the counter is supplied to a DAC. A low-pass filter smoothes the DAC output.

The average forward drop of a Red/Gren LED is 1.2 Volts.
A Pic can source/sink ~20mA from an I/O pin.
So, if you plan to drive a standard led from a 3V supply at ~20mA, your series resistor would be:
(3 - 1.2) / 0.02 = 90.
So a 91R or 100R would be the value to use.
