This is our single Pixel Programmable RGBW Strip. This is a small chainable board with one 5050 SK6812RGBW RGBW LED. The SK6812s are each individually addressable as the driver chip is located inside the LED. Each Stick has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and requires near 5V.
Each Pixel is controlled by a daisy-chained serial bit. All four LEDs (RGBW) are controllable with an 8 bit value, giving a total of 32 bits per pixel. They can be driven by a GPIO line, but the timing is tricky so we have suppled the libraries below to get you going.
See a 12 Pack of Single Pixels here.
Each stick and Pixel is carefully sized so you can build evenly spaced larger displays out of these sticks.
This Pixel is NeoPixel compatible.
Each Pixel has two Grove connectors. One for input and then one for output. To chain the Pixel you connect the output of one pixell or stick to the input of another stick or Pixel and then so on. No soldering required!
NeoPixels (Trademark of Adafruit) are what component maker and seller Adafruit calls RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) LEDs with integrated controllers.
