Adafruit 1260, Flora RGB Smart Neopixel Version 2 LED Ultra-Bright LED Board
Product Details

FLORA RGB Smart NeoPixel V2 - Pack of 4

These tiny LED wonders are now in their second generation, doubling communication speed upto 800 kHz compared to the originals 400 kHz.

They are designed specifically for wearables and incorporate ultra-bright LEDs and a constant-current driver into the LED package. As they have the driver on-board, they are less susceptible to battery power changes or fluctuations. You can chain the LED pixels together and you only need 1 pin/wire to control them.

The LEDs are full 24-bit colour and the PWM is taken care of by the controller chip. Each pixel draws a maximum of 60 mA if all three RGB LEDs are set to for full brightness (white).

In theory, FLORA (RS 905-4605) can drive up to 500 pixels at 30 fps (RAM limitations). However, once you move past 10 pixels you need to use stranded core wire or copper braid to deal with the current draw.

12.5 mm diameter x 2.5 mm thickness (0.5” x 0.1")
800 kHz speed protocol
5 V dc to 9 V dc power
Constant current 18.5 mA per LED (∼60 mA max total per pixel)
