10mm LED Clear / Orange
10mm LED Clear Orange are bright and Blinky, or soft and elegant.
They’re festive! They’re colorful!
They’re everywhere and they’re a lot of fun.
We love LEDs when we write tutorials because most of electronics hackery is hidden in chips, or goes very fast and we can’t see or sense it without expensive equipment.
LEDs are so common, they come in dozens of different shapes and sizes.
The LEDs you are most likely to use are the through hole LEDs with two legs.
There are lots of LEDs that are small and hard to solder but these are easy to use with a breadboard because they have long wires we can stick in.
The clear or clear-ish bulb is what protects the light emitter (thats where the magic happens). In fact, the first two letters of LED stand for Light Emitting.
A really nice thing about LEDs is that they are very simple.
Unlike some chips that have dozens of pins with names and special uses, LEDs have only two wires.
One wire is the anode (positive) and another is the cathode (negative).
The two wires have different names because LEDs only work in one direction and we need to keep track of which pin is which.
One goes to the positive voltage and the other goes to the negative voltage.
Electronic parts that only work in ‘one direction’ like this are called Diodes, thats what the last letter of LED stands for.
But LEDs are easy to see for everyone – this way we can visually identify what is going on inside our microcontroller.
This LEDs is exceptionally bright with a wide beam angle, so they’re suitable for use in your projects, illuminations, headlamps, spotlights, car lighting, models.
