Breadboard Layout

The breadboard layout is shown below. The RGB LED should have the longest lead in row 2 of the breadboard. This will be connected to GND.

This wiring diagram assumes you have a common cathode LED - if you have a common anode LED, connect the longest pin to +5V instead of ground. Note that with a common anode display the LED color cycling will be reversed.
