Direct 12v led to arduino mega ?

I bought an Arduino Mega 2560 and 12v RGB led strip (the one strip contains 3 rgb leds and 3 resistors)
So, do I wire it directly to arduino ?

No!

So what to do ?

Use 3-N channel MOSFETs to sink current thru the LED colors to turn them on.
Can you handle a little surface mount soldering?

Yes, but can I just use a breadboard ?

Note: its 5050 rgb led strip

Your strip has only 3 rgb leds? How long is this "strip"?

If it really only has 3 leds, the easiest thing to use would be a uln2003 chip. Connect 3 Arduino pwm pins to 3 of the uln chip's inputs. Connect the r, g & b cathodes from the strip to 3 of the outputs. Connect the strip's anode to 12V. Connect the grounds and that's pretty much it.

Thanks, I will try that in the next weeks :wink:

Doesn't say if that module has three RGB LEDs or one red, one green, and one blue LED.

If you only need three LEDs, buy addressable LEDs.
They don't need mosfets or other drivers.

This is how you post a link.

Working Volt : 12V

That's it? That's all the technical data they offer? No indication of the number of modules you are buying, dimensions or current requirements? I would not buy from that shop.
