You thought it couldn't get better than our world-famous
32-LED-per-meter Digital LED strip but we will prove you wrong! These
NeoPixel strips have 30 digitally-addressable pixel LEDs per meter and
are very affordable and are only 12.5 mm wide, 10 mm if you remove the
strip from the casing.
There are some things to watch for:
* These LED's use about 9.5 Watts max (~2 Amps @ 5V) per meter. The
max rating is assuming all the LEDs are on full white, usually the
actual current for colorful design is about 1/3 to 1/2 the max
current. A good power supply such as our 5V 2A or 10A supply is key!
* To make the strip thin and easier to manufacture, the controller
chip is inside the LED, which is kind of cool, but also means that the
chip only uses a single pin for input and a single pin for output. The
protocol used is very very timing-specific and can only be controlled
by microcontrollers with highly repeatable 100nS timing precision. We
have example code for using with the Arduino Uno/Mega microcontroller
at 8MHz and 16MHz, but it will not work with the Raspberry Pi, Basic
Stamp, NETduino, any other interpreted/virtual machine microprocessor
or any processor slower than 8 MHz. For those processors, check our 32
LED/meter digital LED strip which has SPI-like input/output and works
well with Pi, NETduino, and other processors.
* The way the pixels are controlled by an Arduino, the entire strip
must be buffered in memory, and we've found many Arduino UNO projects
only have about 500bytes of RAM available after all the extras are
included - enough for about 150 LED pixels. If you want to drive the
entire strip and have some other libraries included, you may need to
use a Mega.
There are 30 RGB LEDs per meter, and you can control each LED
individually! Yes, that's right, this is the digitally-addressable
type of LED strip. You can set the color of each LED's red, green and
blue component with 8-bit PWM precision (so 24-bit color per pixel).
The LEDs are controlled by shift-registers that are chained up down
the strip so you can shorten or lengthen the strip. Only 1 digital
output pin are required to send data down. The PWM is built into each
LED-chip so once you set the color you can stop talking to the strip
and it will continue to PWM all the LEDs for you
The strip is made of flexible PCB material, and comes with a
weatherproof sheathing. You can cut this stuff pretty easily with wire
cutters, there are cut-lines every 1.3"/3.4cm (1 LED each). Solder to
the 0.1" copper pads and you're good to go. Of course, you can also
connect strips together to make them longer, just watch how much
current you need! We have a 5V/2A supply that should be able to drive
1 meter (depending on use) Important: You must use a 5V DC power
supply to power these strips, do not use higher than 6V or you can
destroy the entire strip . Important2: Please note that the cable
colors might differ! Please always check the print on th PCB to be
sure which cable has which function!
This is a reel with 5 meters and 2-pin JST SM connectors on each end
and separated power/ground wires.
At this time, we do not have a detailed usage tutorial or datasheet
(still working on it!) However we do have ready-to-go library code for
both the Arduino UNO/Duemilanove/Diecimila and Mega/ADK (all versions)
