Add color to your projects with non-addressable LED strips! These are perfect if you want to control and power the entire strip with one color for your props, car, fish tank, room, wall, or perhaps under cabinet lighting in your home.

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.

    Data Sheet doesn't indicate which pins are RED, GREEN and BLUE

  • ArtK / about 10 years ago / 1

    Not only is the diagram wrong (longest lead is the anode), but at least one of the LEDs in my batch had the green and blue swapped. From the flat it was Red-Anode-Blue-Green while the rest are Red-Anode-Green-Blue.

    Another 'heads-up', the diagram on the included sheet is incorrect. The longest lead is the common anode, not the green LED. The green LED is the next longest lead that is shown as the common anode. In other words, the green lead and the common anode are swapped.

    And the battery polarity is backwards as well.

    Just a heads up: the small paper insert in the package has an incorrect wiring diagram on the back. The diagram was meant for common cathode LEDs, so just swap + and - and you'll be set.

    Is this tutorial relevant? It doesn't appear to concern this type of LED at all.

    Hey guys, where is that Content Sheet suppose to be linking too? It would be nice if it was pointed to a data sheet. Right now it's sends you back to New Product Friday: Tools and Robot Edition. RobertC. might be very knowledgeable but he's not a Datasheet.

      I think it's supposed to link to http://www.sparkfun.com/images/products/09852-04.jpg rather than http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/images/products/09852-04.jpg
