The Great Search: Tiny Bright Green SMT LEDs #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey #Adafruit @DigiKey @Adafruit
The Great Search is a new series of videos focused on searching the Digi-Key catalog to narrow down to the parts you want to buy. This week (video):
A user loves the green LED on the BME280 breakout and wants to buy some for their own projects. Do we have a Digikey part number for that one? From the Adafruit Forums:
I have purchased many Adafruit sensor breakout boards (can’t resist them) and recently I bought 3 BME280 sensor boards.
Q: The green LED on that board is so bright and beautiful! I want to order those myself to use them on my projects so can you please tell me what the part number is if possible? I’m living in The Netherlands but I can order at Farnell or Digikey…
A customer wrote in asking us about the 0603 green LEDs we have on our STEMMA QT boards. We’ll show you how to find these adorable LEDs on Digi-Key and some tips on how to use LED semiconductor physics and human eyeball biology to reduce power.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
