5mm RGB LED
RGB stands for red, Green and Blue colours. This LED emits these three colours or it blinks these colours, also called blinking LED. A light-emitting diode (LED) is a two-lead semiconductor light source. It is a p–n junction diode that emits light when activated. When a suitable voltage is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence, and the colour of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. LEDs are typically small and integrated optical components may be used to shape the radiation pattern.
