This method provides a good first-order skew approximation for common groups of I/O cells recognizing that actual signal propagation velocity will vary due to circuit loading characteristics.
That might trip the circuit breaker, depending upon the circuit loading, the dimmer circuitry and the breaker type, so the LED driver requires an in-rush current limiting device, and the "pairing" of the LED/driver and the dimmer that's selected.
