View PDF Data Sheet

Full-Color LED Module with 8 selectable 5050 RGB LEDs addressable by Arduino (or any microcontroller).
9 pin 0.1" pitch header supplies Vcc and selects LEDs (D0-7)
3 Pin 0.1" pitch header selects the Color (Red, Green or Blue) of the LEDs by connecting to GND or additional Port pins.
Vcc Pin: connect to 5V
Example: Arduino UNO
D0 - D7 Pins: connect these to port pins 2 - 9
R, G, B Pins: Connect these to port pins 10 - 12
Write your Sketch accordingly.
L: 2-3/8" W: 1-5/16" (Board) H: 1/4" WT: .02

Error on silkscreen on board
Nice board, but took a while to figure out that the pin assignments for color selection in my Arduino sketch were NOT wrong. The silk screen call out on the board for the RBG pins has the B & G reversed. They are in RGB order. Easy to fix, just a bit confusing.

Random Blink with Arduino
This is a fun little board. Here is a sketch to demo the board --- void setup { /* MPJA inc 8 RGB LED board 36805-MP to Arduino port pins D0 - port pin 2 : D1 - port pin 3 : D2 - port pin 4 : D3 - port pin 5 D4 - port pin 6 : D5 - port pin 7 : D6 - port pin 2 : D7 - port pin 12 R - port pin 9 : B - port pin 10: G - port pin 11 Pins 9, 10 and 11 are PWM pins used here to vary the intensity. */ // Set all pins to output. Enable all pins. for int i = 2; i <= 12; i++ { pinModei, OUTPUT; digitalWritei, LOW; } // Set the Red Green and Blue pins to disable. The analogWrite statements enble them. // Otherwise the LEDs are on for the first pass. digitalWrite 9, HIGH; digitalWrite10, HIGH; digitalWrite11, HIGH; } // Randomly vary the brightness of the R G and B pins to create colors. // Randomly blink the LEDs on and off. void loop { analogWrite 9, random245, 255; digitalWriterandom2, 8, HIGH; delay500; analogWrite10, random245, 255; digitalWriterandom2, 8, LOW; delay500; analogWrite11, random245, 255; digitalWriterandom2, 8, LOW; delay500; }
