## I'm new to embedded system terminology.May i know what exactly do you mean by instance in the PWM explanation of nRF52 api?

Module for generating a pulse-width modulated output signal.

This module provides a PWM implementation using timers, GPIOTE, and PPI.

Each PWM instance utilizes 1 timer, 2 PPI channels, and 1 PPI channel group plus 2 PPI and 1 GPIOTE channels ... (more)
