Description

This tiny 5050 (5mm x 5mm) SMD LED is fairly easy to solder and is the most complete way possible to integrate multiple bright LEDs to a design.

They're also a great upgrade for people who have loved and used NeoPixels for a few years but they want something even better. DotStar LEDs use generic 2-wire SPI, so you can push much faster than with the NeoPixel 800 KHz protocol and there's no specific timing required. They have much higher PWM refresh rates, so you can do Persistence of Vision (POV) and have less flickering, particularly at low brightness levels.

Like NeoPixels, DotStar LEDs are 5050-sized LEDs with an embedded microcontroller inside the LED. You can set the color of each LED to 24-bit color (8 bits each red green and blue). Each LED acts like a shift register, reading incoming color data on the input pins. By sending a long string of data, you can control an infinite number of LEDs, just tack on or off the LEDs at the end. The PWM is built into each LED-chip so once you have the color you can stop talking to the strip and it will continue to PWM all the LEDs for you

Another nice thing about DotStars is their high PWM rate. You only have to set the 24-bit color data for each pixel LED once, and then the LED + built-in-chip will handle the PWMing of the red, green and blue. On NeoPixels, this PWM rate happens 400 Hz, which works well but is noticeably at lower brightness and if the strip is moving in any way. DotStars have a 20 KHz PWM rate, so even when moving the strip around, you won't see the pixelation, the color blending is very smooth.

Comes in a package with 10 individual LEDs.
