Experimenter's Guide Book RGB Schematic Error

by modeller on Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:07 pm

On page 30, it shows the RGB LED common pin connected to +5V, yet the schematic symbol indicates it's common cathode. Being careful, I set it up and verified the one supplied is common anode. The schematic symbol in the experimenter's book is wrong, which will confuse people who are paying attention. :)

In the book, the schematic symbol is the one on the left, yet it calls for this pin to be connected to +5V. You should use the symbol on the right.

Please find attached the scanned page from the printed manual that came with the kit. As you can see, the schematic symbol for the LED is incorrect for the part that was supplied in my kit at least. Because there is no way to know if the symbol is wrong, or the suggested voltage, you have to make sure yourself what the error was.
