Re: Series Wired IR LEDs for LIRC

For current-limiting resistors with LEDs, I most often use 220 Ohms. 22 Ohms offers very little in the realm of limiting current, as you have realized yourself. If you used 220 Ohms in series with each LED, and the 5V rail, each leg of your parallel circuit would have (5-1.35)/220, or 16.6mA. With t...

Re: Series Wired IR LEDs for LIRC

Hey Zocker, Burngate already answered your question, but since you mentioned you don't know much about electronics, I wanted to share a resource that explains some basics about series and parallel circuits and circuit analysis. Here's a link to a PDF with some good info: https://learn.digilentinc.co...
