Description: LED Blue 5mm Round Basic LED Light Emitting Diode
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 electroencephalogram, and the color of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. LEDs are typically small (less than 1 mm2) and integrated optical components may be used to shape the radiation pattern.
This is a very basic 5mm LED with a Blue lens. It has a typical forward voltage of 2.0V and a rated forward current of 20mA.
