I have a cheap 8 function light controller that is rated at 3.6-36VDC at 500mA max current that I want to control more than 500mA worth of lights with. Looking at the circuit, it seems that there is an EEPROM on it and then an unmarked IC. I would reverse engineer this circuit but have no idea what the function of that IC is. Would it be worth it to model a new circuit and just place the EEPROM on it or would it be easier to possibly feed the output of the 8 function controller into another circuit that can handle more current (possibly feed the output into a triac or something)? I would like to keep this as simple as I possibly can, but have no idea what I am getting into...
