APA106 Addressable RGB Through Hole LEDs
Love RGB LEDs like the WS2812B, Adafruit NeoPixels and others - but can't deal with surface-mount soldering? Well your problems have been solved thanks to these addressable RGB LEDs from PMD Way
That's right - RGB LEDs in a normal enclosure - that are fully addressable from your Arduino or other microcontroller. Each LED contains an APA106 controller IC. Awesome!
We offer these LEDs in both 5mm and 8mm diameter - and in packs from two to one thousand. Select your requirement from the drop-down menu.
APA106 LEDs are compatible with the WS2812B LED libraries used with Adafruit NeoPixels, WS2812B etc. so coding is a dream. You can spread the legs a little, and they fit in a breadboard nicely:
- Voltage range: 4.5~6V DC
- Current - at 50% brightness with all RGB on - 35mA at 5V; 100% brightness - 60mA 5V
- Diameter - 5 or 8mm
- Chipset: APA106
- Internal frequency up to 800 kHz
