This super bright RGB LED features a common anode (positive) and Red, Green and Blue cathodes. It is best used with a constant current driver and PWM signals to control the brightness of each color. Using proper controlling hardware, you can create millions of colors.
If you are looking for a good breakout, check this link out. We offer a board that provides three constant current drivers that you can control with any PWM device -- including Arduino!
Also make sure you put a good heat sink on this one! Its gets super hot without one!
