This is the documentation for the latest (main) development branch of Zephyr. If you are looking for the documentation of previous releases, use the drop-down list at the bottom of the left panel and select the desired version.


Vendor: Generic or vendor-independent


This allows you to define a group of LEDs. Each LED in the group is
controlled by a GPIO. Each LED is defined in a child node of the
gpio-leds node.

Here is an example which defines three LEDs in the node /leds:

/ {
     leds {
             compatible = "gpio-leds";
             led_0 {
                     gpios = <&gpio0 1 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>;
             led_1 {
                     gpios = <&gpio0 2 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
             led_2 {
                     gpios = <&gpio1 15 (GPIO_PULL_UP | GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW)>;


- led_0 is pin 1 on gpio0. The LED is on when the pin is low,
  and off when the pin is high.
- led_1 is pin 2 on gpio0. The LED is on when the pin is high,
  and off when it is low.
- led_2 is pin 15 on gpio1. The LED is on when the pin is low,
  and the pin's internal pull-up resistor should be enabled.

Child node properties






This property is required.



Human readable string describing the LED. It can be used by an
application to identify this LED or to retrieve its number/index
(i.e. child node number) on the parent device.
