Arduino Current Sourcing for Common Anode RGB
Is it safe for the arduino to sink more current then the arduino is sourcing? (see diagram below)
My project requires 12 of large 10mm RGB leds, broken down this is 36 leds in total, which exceeds maximum draw, the design calls for the LED's to share a 5v+ from a seperate 5v regulator, then sink each pin to low to turn them on
is this correct?
