LED - RGB Diffused Common Cathode


The Sparkfun LED - RGB Diffused Common Cathode is a versatile and vibrant lighting solution that combines the power of Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) colors in a single 5mm unit. With four pins, including the longest one for Cathode, it allows you to control each color individually or mix them to create a wide spectrum of colors. This LED is perfect for creating three status indicators or for experimenting with pulse width modulation.

This LED is diffused, meaning it provides a softer light that may appear dimmer, but offers a wider viewing angle. This makes it ideal for ambient lighting, mood lighting, or any project where a broad light spread is more important than high intensity.
