RBG LED WS2812B fully addressable – SMD package 5050
Oktoberfest Sale 10%-50% OFF
RGB LED WS2812B in the big 5050 SMD package (5×5 mm), fully controllable by a single wire serial connection from any microcontroller. These LEDs can be controlled by the NeoPixel Arduino library.
The LED contains its own 18mA constant-current driver, and an addressable driver chip, and will work without any current limiting resistors on a power supply of 4-7V.
Since the data protocol is quite timing-specific, you will need a faster microcontroller when you build a larger cluster of these LEDs (at least 8MHz).
“Interpreted” controller languages like Basic are not recommended due to possible timing issues.
Adafruit registered the brand name “Neopixel” for these LEDs. But the manufacturer is Worldsemi and not Adafruit. Don’t get fooled and believe this would be developed by Adafruit. Adafruit only created a library for Arduino.
