This tutorial is compatible with both common cathode and common anode LEDs.

Common anode LEDs have the positive connections of the red, green and blue LEDs connected together to one lead (the longest lead). A common cathode LED has the negative connections connected together (again, the longest lead).

Select the next step according to the type of RGB LED that you have.
