This is a pack of five purple-LED boards for LilyPad, or any project where you need to add LEDs in specific places. Each LED board measures 5 × 11 mm. Like all LilyPad boards, it is built using a thin PCB — only 0.8 mm thick.
These purple LEDs have a much higher voltage drop than the other LilyPad LED colors that are available, thus their intensity is lower. The picture below shows all seven of the available LilyPad LED colors illuminated for comparison. A purple LED is on the far left.
LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley. Each LilyPad is designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. Most are even washable!
See our LilyPad category to find more LilyPad components and conductive thread you can use to sew a circuit into clothing.
