LED - RGB Clear Common Anode (25 pack) Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

Customer Comments

  • Are these the same LEDs as the single version (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10820)? I’m assuming so but the luminosity is completely different. These also seem pretty bright (looking at the info above) compared to other RGB LED’s I’ve seen. Can anyone confirm these are really that bright?

  • I tried driving at the specified voltages in series with the specified resistor values and I get nothing. If I crank up the juice to around 5-6 volts I get the green to work but can’t get the other colors at all. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    • Hi There, The little sheet packed with the leds is wrong. The sheet shows the negative attached to pin 2 and positive(via resistor) to the others. These LED’s are common anode (i.e. common positive) therefore you need to connect the positive to pin 2 and the resistors & negative to the other pins.

  • Does anyone know if the 20mA Imax is per colour or total combined?
