A 5mm Diffused Blue and Red Common Cathode 3 Pin Round LED Light-Emitting Diode (LED) is a small electronic component used for illuminating applications. Here's a detailed description of this specific LED:

  1. Size and Shape: The LED is 5mm in diameter, making it a standard through-hole component that fits into a 5mm mounting hole. It has a round shape, which is common for LEDs of this size.

  2. Color: This LED emits two different colors, blue and red. The term "diffused" indicates that the emitted light is not extremely focused or concentrated but rather spreads out, creating a softer and more evenly distributed glow.

  3. Common Cathode: It features a common cathode configuration, which means that the LED has three pins (metallic leads) coming out of it. Two of these pins are for the individual colors (blue and red), while the third pin is a shared cathode. This setup allows you to control the blue and red colors separately by applying voltage to the corresponding pins while grounding the common cathode.

  4. Operating Voltage: To make this LED emit light, you'll need to apply the appropriate voltage to the blue and red pins. The common cathode is connected to the ground (0V).

  5. Applications: LEDs like this one find applications in various electronic devices and projects where multi-color illumination is required. They are commonly used in indicators, displays, signs, and DIY electronics projects.

  6. Durability: LEDs are known for their long lifespan, energy efficiency, and resistance to shock and vibration. They are solid-state devices, meaning they have no moving parts, making them reliable for continuous use.

  7. Ease of Use: Being a through-hole component, it's relatively easy to solder this LED onto a circuit board or connect it using wires. The three-pin configuration also simplifies wiring for dual-color control.
