Color LED (sensor)

Color LED (sensor)

Regular price $3.00 Sale

The Color LED Sensor is full-color LED, adopting single serial cascade protocol. Only one I/O port can control the RGB color of each LED on the line. If the power supply supports, it can support the cascade of as many as 1024 LEDs.

*Compatible with the DIY and mCookie series.

Description of Sensor Pin

Color LED
General Pin Out Sensor / Trinket's Pin Out
PIN1 (GND) GND
PIN2 (VCC) VCC
PIN3 (SIGNAL-A) Digital Output (One-wire communication)
PIN4 (SIGNAL-B) Not Connected
  • General Pin Out is the standard pin out of a Sensor / Trinket connector.
  • Sensor / Trinket's Pin Out is this specific Sensor / Trinket's wiring in relation to the General Pin Out.
  • SIGNAL-A / SIGNAL-B are signals that could be digital input, digital output, analog input or analog output. Or special signals such as serial communication (SoftwareSerial, IIC (I2C), etc) or other special signals.
  • Not Connected refers to the Pin not being used for this particular Sensor / Trinket.
