Description: Ever hear of a thing called RGB? Red, Green, Blue? How about an RGB LED? These 5mm units have four pins: one for each color and a common anode. Use this one LED for three status indicators or pulse width modulate all three and get mixed colors!

Note: The datasheet below is for the common cathode version of these LEDs, all of the values are the same except that instead of sharing a cathode, these share an anode. An updated datasheet will be added as soon as possible.

Features:

  • Forward Voltage (RGB): (2.0, 3.2, 3.2)V
  • Luminosity (RGB): (800, 4000, 900)mcd

  • The datasheet that’s linked to currently looks like it’s for the correct (common anode) LED. Is the note in the description out of date?

  • Hi, I tried the new LED-RGB-CC-THRU and the copper pads are fused together. Is there a setting to fix this? I have Eagle 6-3.0.0

    • In the DRC dialog, change the “restring” value to a smaller size (0mil is OK). This value controls the smallest possible pad size and will override the pad size that the part was given in the library.

  • The SparkFun Library has now been updated as of 2/2/2013 for this through hole tricolor LED. You can find it under “LED-RGB-THRU” or “LED-RGB-CA-THRU” depending on the package under SparkFun-LED.lbr. If you are using the common cathode you can find it under “LED-RGB-CC-THRU.”

    To download the latest libraries just go to Github => https://github.com/sparkfun/SparkFun-Eagle-Libraries

  • What resistors do I use with these when used with an arduino?

    • I’m a bit of a noob so this may be way off, but I believe it’d be 150 ohms for the red and 91 for the blue/green.
