#169 RGBLedModule

Demo an RGB LED module

Here’s a quick video of the module in action:

RGBLedModule Demo

Notes

The RGB LED module is a convenience since it builds-in 150Ω current-limiting resistors for the reg, green and blue anodes of a standard 5mm round RGB LED.

Module

The demonstration program uses PWM to run a series of effects on the module.

NB: on my module, the red and blue pins are incorrectly labeled (swapped around).

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LEAP GitHub repository.

LEAP is my personal collection of electronics projects, usually involving an Arduino or other microprocessor in one way or another. Some are full-blown projects, while many are trivial breadboard experiments, intended to learn and explore something interesting (IMHO!).

The projects are usually inspired by things found wild on the net, or ideas from the sources such as:

Feel free to borrow liberally, and if you spot any issues do let me know. See the individual projects for credits where due. There are even now a few projects contributed by others - send your own over in a pull request if you would also like to add to this collection.
