The Triple Output LED RGB - SMD from Sparkfun offers a unique combination of colors in a compact SMD format. It features four pads with a common anode configuration, allowing for the creation of three status indicators using just one LED. By pulse width modulating all three outputs, you can achieve a range of mixed colors. A simple breakout board is available separately for easy installation and use.
The Triple Output LED RGB - SMD is notable for its impressive light intensity, or Iv. The red output typically shines at 81mcd, the green at 130mcd, and the blue at 54mcd.
The forward voltage, or Vf, is another important feature of this product. The red LED typically operates at 2.0V, while the green and blue LEDs operate at 3.5V.
The wavelength of the light emitted by this LED is also worth noting. The red LED emits light at a wavelength of 615nm, the green at 530nm, and the blue at 470nm.
The Triple Output LED RGB - SMD is ideal for a variety of applications. For example, it can be used in electronics projects that require status indicators. Its ability to produce mixed colors also makes it perfect for projects that require a range of color outputs, such as decorative lighting or color-coded notifications.
One of the key benefits of this product is its compact size, which enables it to fit into small spaces while still providing high-intensity light. Additionally, its common anode configuration simplifies the wiring process, making it easier to integrate into your projects.
