    Keep in mind these are 5% tolerance, so if 2 ohms makes a difference in your circuit you should probably be looking for the blue guys…

  • Product BOB-12082 | about 4 months ago

    Presumably whatever microcontroller you have driving this already has a source of regulated 3V3 or 5V?

    Good point. They’re probably just trying to educate kids on how in the tech industry, women are sexual objects whose purpose is to entertain men.

  • News - New Product Friday: Strip… | about 7 months ago

    Was it really necessary to sexualize a boring new product post? When will people realize this kind of sexist innuendo is unwelcoming and unfriendly to women in the maker community.

    It’s not even a clever joke, there was no “tease” at all. If you had thought for 5 seconds you could have used “Strip Mall” or “Strip Mine” and that actually would have made some sense.

  • Product DEV-08467 | about 10 months ago

    I should have continued on to say that calling analogWrite(redLedPin, 128); would (due to PWM) reverse-bias the red LED 50% of the time, causing it to be (roughly) half as bright. This is because when a diode is reverse-biased, no current flows through it. Makes sense?

  • Product DEV-11590 | about 10 months ago

    Considering the unit is meant to be used as-is, pre-programmed, what can you “proto” with this? They could have at least made the ICSP headers friendlier to access…

    Yep, each color LED has a different chemistry, and produces a different amount of light per input current.

  • Product DEV-08467 | about a year ago

    Read the description again. It’s a common anode LED. To light up red, connect the red pin to ground so the current you’re supplying to the + pin can flow through the red LED. (For example, with Arduino use digitalWrite(redLedPin, LOW);)

    Zapp you are being a cock to a stranger.

  • Product DEV-10899 | about a year ago

    That’s an expensive way to make an LED matrix. $17.20 for 20 5050 RGB LEDs vs $34.95 for the addressable 20 LED string?

No public wish lists :(
