This NeoPixel Jewel has seven tiny 5050 (5mm x 5mm) smart RGB LEDs onto a round PCB with mounting holes. Use only one microcontroller pin to control as many as you can chain together!
Each LED is addressable as the driver chip is inside the LED. Each one has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and no external choke resistors are required making the design slim. Power the whole thing with 5VDC (4-7V works) and you're ready to rock.
The LEDs are 'chainable' by connecting the output of one roundboard into the input of another. There is a single data line with timing-specific protocol. Since the protocol is very sensitive to timing, it requires a real-time microcontroller such as an microbit, AVR, Arduino, PIC, mbed, etc. It cannot be used with a Linux-based microcomputer or interpreted microcontroller such as the netduino or Basic Stamp.
Comes as a single NeoPixel Jewel with 7 individually addressable RGB LEDs assembled and tested.
- The Neo Pixel Jewels are chainable, chain as many as you want together and control them with a single microcontroller such as the microbit/Arduino.
- Each LED is individually addressable.
