SMD LED Hacked!

SMD LED Hacked! © CC BY

I soldered SMD LED directly to wire and made them into THT LED, then used an Arduino to fade them.

About this project

Normally, we require a PCB for SMD LED so I tried to do something completely different by adding wire to them and connecting them in parallel configuration.

These LEDs are of.5 watt each.

Thanks UTSOURCE.net to offer electronic components for this project!

you can check UTSOURCE.net, they deal in all kinds of electronic components, for example, Arduino board, LEDs, and many more.

Well, watch the video....


Code

CodeC/C++
its just the fade sketch but you can do a lot with these led, just use your creative imagination
int led = 9;           // the PWM pin the LED is attached to
int brightness = 0;    // how bright the LED is
int fadeAmount = 5;    // how many points to fade the LED by

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {
  // declare pin 9 to be an output:
  pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
}

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
  // set the brightness of pin 9:
  analogWrite(led, brightness);

  // change the brightness for next time through the loop:
  brightness = brightness + fadeAmount;

  // reverse the direction of the fading at the ends of the fade:
  if (brightness <= 0 || brightness >= 255) {
    fadeAmount = -fadeAmount;
  }
  // wait for 30 milliseconds to see the dimming effect
  delay(30);
}
