Tutorial - Beginning Embedded Electronics - 1
about 2 years ago
Excellent tutorial. I have never picked up a breadboard or put even the most basic of circuits together. Following your instructions I was able to do it right the first time. I’ve plugged in all kinds of leds including some RGB ones..too much blowing them up ; )
Going back and rereading this, I didn’t quite understand this line….
“You may be wondering if the resistor/LED order matters. It does not. The resistor can come first and then the LED or as shown. Either configuration will correctly limit current through the LED”
The resistor can come first how?
No public wish lists :(
