In recent years, interest of the LED lighting is increased drastically in different applications. The reason for that are great advantages LED lighting. Advantages are: small dimensions, low power consumption, long life (up to 50,000 h), top colorful solution (RGB lighting) and ability to adjust the brightness. System enriched microcontroller can in many cases replace the man. Such system reduces dimensions of device and power consumption. Reason for that are very good features of microcontrollers: small size, can be programmed, minimum number of external components are required for normal operation, very long life, etc. In this chapter of the book, we described method of designing advertising LED system using PIC18F4550 microcontroller. LED strips are used for making letters and light-emitting diodes are used for additional effects. The PIC18F4550 microcontroller is used to control advertising LED system (on/off letters and additional effects). We conducted analysis of electricity consumption creation of advertising LED system. For additional savings of electricity consumption is integrated infrared motion sensor. In this way is enabled long-term operation advertising LED system especially in rural areas in conditions where LED advertising system is powered by battery or powered by combination of batteries and photovoltaic cells.
