LEDs - those blinky things. A must have for power indication, pin status, opto-electronic sensors, and fun blinky displays.
This is a very basic 5mm violet LED. It has a typical forward voltage of 3.0-3.6V and a rated forward current of 30mA.
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.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Purple is my favorite color, and I hadn’t seen any purple LEDs before this, so I was excited to discover these violet ones. They seem really bright for LEDs, which has been pretty useful.
