RGB W LEDs are the newest trend in lighting. With their latest innovation and advancement in technology, the lights have been getting brighter and more efficient. In this article, we'll break down what makes these LEDs so different from other LED types.

What is the Difference Between RGB W LEDs and LEDs?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, and a LED is actually a diode that emits light when current flows through it. That's all there is to it!

The biggest differences between most types of LEDs and other types of diodes, however, are their physical sizes. For example, RGB W LED can normally be as small as 1mm in diameter and still produce output light.

Traditional diodes are made from materials such as silicon or germanium that have trouble producing visible light in such small sizes. These diodes can only be applied to microelectronic devices because they're too thin to accommodate traditional circuit boards.

With this focus on size, RGB W LEDs are often used in devices that require high-intensity light sources. A common example is the traffic signal: because RGB W  LEDs can be made so small, they can be placed almost anywhere, including alongside roadways to guide drivers.

They're also available in a variety of colors, making it easy to use them for decorative purposes or as indicators of status (such as signal lights). But aside from size, diodes and LEDs have different operating characteristics.

Diodes are typically low resistance devices that allow current flow only in one direction (so-called 'forward bias'), whereas LED emitters usually have both positive and negative current flow (so-called 'reverse bias').
