These 10 segment bar graph LEDs have many uses. With a compact footprint, simple hookup, they are easy for prototyping or finished products. Essentially, they are 10 individual yellow LEDs housed together, each with an individual anode and cathode connection.
Note: The pinout on these bar graphs may vary from what is listed on the datasheet. Rotating the device 180 degrees will correct the change making pin 11 the first pin in line. We have contacted our supplier to correct this mistake in the future.
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: 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.

I find it to be smart to make a bar graph with leds in such way. I jumped right ahead to use it on my bread board but forgot the resistor and burned one of the leds. The yellow colored led looks great! I do recommend that the anode and cathode sides be clearly distinguished.
