Abstract: LED is an acronym for “light emitting diode.” The first important fact is that LED is an electronic component, a diode, a component that can conduct current in one direction and not the other. As many other electronics components, controlling a LED is an easy topic, in order to obtain different behavior. Due to the fact that a LED must produce light, a LED present some differences form traditional diode.
