Luxeon Rebel High Power LED Breakout - Royal Blue

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this LED breakout in our catalog. This page is for reference only.

This is a breakout board for the very high-intensity Royal Blue Luxeon Rebel LED. The board is designed to dissipate damaging heat away from the LED to the back of the board. There are three pads for each the anode and the cathode of the LED.

This breakout board comes with the LED installed as shown.

Luxeon Rebel High Power LED Breakout - Royal Blue Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

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.

2 Electrical Prototyping

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.

  • I am making a few lamps to hang in the corners of my living room. Do these need an external heat sink, or is the breakout enough?

  • Would these be good to run off 5v no resistor just plain constant current?

  • I had a nice surprise when I plugged this in and found that it was part beautiful blue light, and part black light! Fluorescent things glow really brightly under this light. It's awesome!

    • Cool factoid about this.
      I'm pretty sure this thing doesn't emit any significant UV (black light) based on the data sheet. What's probably happening is that the fluorescent dye in whatever it is that is glowing has a secondary absorption peak at the rated wavelength. The dye will emit the same frequency of photon when stimulated with either a UV or 450nm blue photon.
      This is a pretty common phenomenon and we just don't notice it because we don't usually hang out under pure wavelength light sources. (I'm a biologist and we exploit this kind of thing in all different sort of applications.)

  • How about a triple LED breakout of this royal blue beauty? I would need one really bad.
