RGB LED (Common Anode ) (Pack of 10)
RGB Common Anode LED makes some beautiful colors with this 10mm tri-color LED with separate red, green and blue LED chips inside! They make a nice indicator, and are fun to color-swirl. We like RGB LEDs because they color mix inside instead of appearing as 3 distinct LEDs.
These are Common-Anode type which means you connect one pin to 5V or so and then tie the other three legs to the ground through a resistor. We carry and use CA more than CC because multi-LED driver chips are often designed exclusively for CA and can’t be used with Common-Cathode.
These 5mm units have four pins: one for each colour and a common anode. Use this one LED for three status indicators or pulse width modulate all three and get mixed colours! These LEDs are diffused; so they’ll appear dimmer but have a wider viewing angle.
