WS2815 Pixel LEDs Protocol Overview

 Pixel Protocol Overview: WS2815 This pixel protocol was designed by Newstar in China. WS2815 offers many of the benefits the WS28xx series is famous for. It uses 12V as its main power input for each chip, VDD, which is then dropped down to 5V inside each pixel for its logic requirements. This allows longer chains of pixels to driven in series, making it one of the most common protocols for pixel lighting displays. The control circuit and LEDs are integrated [...]

WS2814 Pixel IC Protocol Overview

 Pixel Protocol Overview: WS2814 This pixel protocol was designed by Newstar in China. WS2814 offers many of the benefits the WS28xx series is famous for, as well as being the first in the series to offer an RGBW design, making it one of the most common protocols for pixel lighting displays. The control circuit comes in a SOP12 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice. PixLite Support Are you looking for WS2814 pixel drivers that work with Art-Net or sACN? All PixLite [...]

WS2813 Pixel LEDs Protocol Overview

 Pixel Protocol Overview: WS2813 This pixel protocol was designed by Newstar in China. WS2813 offers many of the benefits the WS28xx series is famous for, as well as being the first in the series to offer both a redundant data line and a much higher PWM rate, making it one of the most common protocols for pixel lighting displays. There are multiple variants of WS2813, including A, B, C and D. These variants offer different brightness levels so that all [...]

WS2818 Pixel IC Protocol Overview

 Pixel Protocol Overview: WS2818 This pixel protocol was designed by Newstar in China. WS2818 offers many of the benefits the WS28xx series is famous for, as well as being the first in the series to support an output voltage of up to 24V, making it one of the most common protocols for pixel lighting displays. The control circuit comes in a SOP8 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice. PixLite Support Are you looking for WS2818 pixel drivers that work with [...]

HD107S/SK9822/WS2812B

WS2182: 1-wire interface, fixed 800khz data rate, 400hz PWM rate, power draw up to 40mA/LED SK9822: 2-wire interface, variable up to 16Mhz data rate, 4.7khz PWM rate, power draw up to 40mA/LED HD107s: 2-wire interface, variable up to 40Mhz data rate, 27khz PWM rate, power draw up to 30mA/LED SK9822 and HD107s also have a 32-level brightness value, which gives improved control at lower brightness. HD107s supports a sleep mode providing up to 99% power reduction when the LED is turned off. What [...]

Different Pixel LEDs-Comparison

Comparison LED Strips: WS2812B, SK6812, APA102, HD107S All LEDs are SMD5050 to compare (they also have 3535/2020/1515 size). There are RGB and RGBW variants for some of them (W of RGBW is used for an additional white LED 3000k/4000k/6000k CCT). These LEDs fall into two categories:WS2812B, SK6812:3wires 4feet One wire to control LED (asynchronous) Refresh rate of 400Hz, restricted data rate of 800Hz Not suitable for POV (Persistence of Vision) applications (too slow in refreshing) Interrupt compatibilityAPA102, HD107S4wires 6feet 2 wire SPI pin (CLK & DAT) (synchronous) No strict [...]
