How do you wire LEDs like this, together? Say if you wanted around 24 of them in a line. Will also accept sauce on how to do it.The only guides I can find online involve those old busted ass rinky dink Operation board game style LEDs with 2 wires.
>>1610709open your eyes and look at the imagethe two pins on the left are the same piece of metal. the two pins on the right are the same piece of metal.if you look at the datasheet it will tell you, two are anode two are cathode.you can connect one pin, the other pin, or both pins of the anode and the same with the cathode. whatever is easiest for you.why are they like that then? fuck if i know.
>>1610713yeah my vision blows ass, thanks though
>>1610709do you know how to wire LEDs, electrically speaking? parallel vs. serial, etc?
>>1610709>Say if you wanted around 24 of them in a line. Make a PCB, or if you're broke, use protoboard. If you don't know how to wire them check this site http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz
>>1610709You can't solder LEDs in parallel without a resistor. If one of the LEDs has a slightly lower junctionforward voltage drop, all the other ones will not light up, or will light up very dimly.LEDs in series will require you to calculate the total voltage drop for your desired current, then youwill have to spec a resistor to "make up" for the rest of the voltage that your supply provides.If you were to make them all parallel with resistors, beware of overcurrent on the line. If you have forinstance two bare wires running in parallel and you hook up your LEDs each with a resistor, thebeginning of the power line will have the current of all the leds passing through it. If you're using anyform of thick wire that should not be a problem, but if you are using tiny wire like 28ga, you might burn it.
>>1610877>spec a resistor to "make up" for the rest of the voltage that your supply provides.Unless you're using a current source, instead.
>>1610827>just regulari think you should make it easy on yourself and buy an LED driver. sparkfun has some that can be daisy-chained to support 24 altogether, and some easy-to-follow hookup guides.
>>1610889Fuck off shill
>>1610713Likely more robist shit like blietooth speakers and machinery that get beat all to shit
>>1610709pins want to go through a board
