NEW PRODUCT – Diffused Square 5mm RGB LEDs – Pack of 10
Make some beautiful colors with these diffused 5mm RGB LEDs with separate red, green and blue LED chips inside! They make nice indicators, and they’re fun to color-swirl! We like diffused RGB LEDs because they color mix inside instead of appearing as 3 distinct LEDs. Pack of 10 Diffused Square 5mm RGB 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 can’t be used with Common-Cathode.
