LED Datasheets Answered
Whenever I'm working on circuit, I often find it helpful to view the datasheet for a certain component. This is especially helpful with transistors and IC's that I pull out of old electronic devices. Finding datasheets for those kinds of components is easy because the ID number is written right on it, but what I'd like to know is how to find datasheets for LED's. Obviously, they aren't going to have any numbers printed on them and most of the time, I don't remember the circuit board or store I got them from so how would I find the datasheet for one. You might wonder why I need a datasheet, but it's often important and/or useful to know the max voltage or current needed, as well as the lens type, amount of light emitted, etc. , especially on infrared or RGB leds. Any help would be appreciated.
