LED Strip Hook-Up Guide

Course Overview:

In this practical guide, you'll learn to hook up and control different types of LED strips:

  • One-color LED Strips
  • RGB LED Strips
  • Addressable RGB LED Strips

It's good to have an understanding of the basics of LEDs when you go through this course, but it's not required.

Components Used

This guide is meant to help you hook up any LED strip. You can use it to learn how to hook up a strip you already own, or to learn how to choose one for your next project.

We recommend that you go through the course first before you purchase any components. This way, you'll get a good understanding of what you need to keep in mind when buying LED strips and power supplies - and you can buy the best fit for the project you have in mind.

Here's an overview of the components we used:

  • One-Color LED Strip
  • RGB LED Strip
  • Addressable RGB LED Strip
  • 12V Power Supply
  • Arduino UNO
  • IRF540 MOSFET x3
  • 100Ω resistor x3
  • Breadboard
  • Jumper wires
