WS2811 LED Strip

What is WS2811 LED Strip?

The WS2811 is an external integrated circuit (IC) that is commonly used in LED strip lighting. Each WS2811 IC is capable of controlling one RGB LED group 3 leds or 6leds , allowing for the creation of various lighting effects such as color changing and chasing patterns.

The WS2811 IC operates by receiving digital signals from a microcontroller, which can be programmed to send specific commands to control the color and brightness of each small group of LEDs. The IC then interprets the signals and sends the appropriate data to the corresponding LED.

A WS2811 LED strip is a type of addressable LED rope light that usually mounted on a flexible circuit board. The WS2811 LED strip can be programmed to create a wide variety of lighting effects, from static colors to dynamic patterns and animations.

What is WS2811 LED Strip

WS2811 LED Strip Light is an economically addressable LED strip light controlled by external IC WS2811. Each IC controls 3LEDs, so every 3LEDs can be cut into a pixel. Each pixel can be addressed individually, which makes it very flexible in many applications.

WS2811 is a 3-channel LED driver IC. The circuit includes an intelligent digital port data latch and a signal shaping and amplifying driving circuit. Also included is a precision internal oscillator and a 12V programmable constant current output driver. In order to reduce the power ripple, the three output channels are designed with a delayed turn-on function.

The WS2815 LED Strip is an economically addressable LED strip controlled by the internal IC WS2815. Each IC controls 1 LED, so each LED can be cut into a pixel. Each pixel can be addressed individually, which makes it very flexible in many applications.

WS2811 LED Strip Features:

1. Programmable LED Strip Light: built-in WS2811 smart driver ICs which can be programmed with Arduino, Raspberry Pi
