Controlling external LEDs
In the last chapter, we looked at a quick blink recipe on how to control our on board LEDs. Now, the objective is to have an external LED on a breadboard blink. First, we will take a look at the circuit symbol of a basic LED so that we can recognize its proper usage, as shown in the following diagram:
In the following image, you will see what a real-life LED actually looks like. Not so straightforward as looking at the symbol, right?
With LEDs, polarity matters to have ...
