NEW PRODUCT – Diffused RGB (tri-color) 10mm LED (10 pack) – Common Anode

Make some beautiful colors with these diffused 10mm tri-color LED with separate red, green and blue LED chips inside! They make a nice indicator, and fun to color-swirl. We like diffused RGB LEDs because they color mix inside instead of appearing as 3 distinct LEDs.

These are Common-Anode type which means you connect one pin to 5V or so and then tie the other three legs to ground through a resistor. We carry and use CA more than CC because multi-LED driver chips (such as the TLC5940/TLC5941) are often designed exclusively for CA and cant be used with Common-Cathode.

  • 10mm diameter
  • Red: 623 nm wavelength, Green: 523 nm, Blue: 467 nm
  • Red: 1.8-2.2V Forward Voltage, at 20mA current, Green: 3.0-3.4V, Blue: 3.0-3.4V
  • 50 degree viewing angle.
  • Red: 700 mcd typical brightness, Green: 2100 mcd, Blue: 900 mcd
  • Datasheet
