    Connect Ameba with the LED

    In a LED, the longer pin is the positive pole, and the shorter pin is the negative pole. So, we connect the shorter pin to GND and connect the longer pin to D13. Additionally, to avoid the electric current exceeds the tolerance of the LED and causes damage, we connect a resistance on the positive pole.

Great guide! Connecting the LED to Ameba is crucial for many projects. Remembering to link the shorter pin to GND and the longer pin to D13, along with using a resistor for current control, ensures a smooth integration. Happy tinkering!
