SMD Wireless LEDs - as good as the commercial versions?Vote
SMD wireless LEDs - what's not to like? I showed in a previous video how to do this with through-hole components. These worked really well, but they weren't as nice looking as the commercial versions.
In this video, I'll show you how to make the same wireless LEDs but using surface mount components.
You can of course just buy these on Aliexpress - https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_A4gUEH
But if you want to build them yourself check out this video for full instructions: https://youtu.be/jdc_0r5pJPc
The inductor I'm using is a 2.2mH 0503 from this series: https://www.mouser.co.uk/datasheet/2/54/SDR0503-1391313.pdf these are pretty standard components so shop around.
For the capacitor, you'll need 220pF and I'm using a 1206 size. I'm using the same 1206 size for the LEDs. Any generic LEDs and Capacitors will do.
A collection of slightly mad projects, instructive/educational videos, and generally interesting stuff. Building projects around the Arduino and ESP32 platforms - we'll be exploring AI, Computer Vision, Audio, 3D Printing - it may get a bit eclectic...
