I am in a discovery phase of sorts.  I am looking for these LED's:

 

THey are RGBAW led's, low power type.

 

The closest I could find are these:

But at 6 watts an LED its too much for what I am thinking of doing.

 

I was wondering if anyone has seen RGBAW low power LED's in an SMD package.  I am also looking for a driver IC  well, but one thing at a time.

 

Off to Digikey and Mouser as well as more Aliexpress searches

I guess A is amber and W is white? RGB is RGB, that's easy. And I'll ask the 1st silly question: Can't you do with just RGB?

I guess someone needs very precise color control for lighting.

I just took a screenshot of the picture above. Cut out and saved just one LED from it:

 

 

then uploaded that to Google image search with the search terms "rgbaw led" and it said:

 

 

 

The point being: don't forget that Google can search for pictures as well as words ;-)

Thanks for the google search tip.  I actually did not know that.

 

@candyman.  That looks to be a perfect match!  I even tried Alibaba and went nowhere.  THANKS!

Note the one I found was RBGWW, but I'd take their description with a grain of salt...plus they prob have 1000 types
