This digital RGB LED strip with 60 WS2813 LEDs per meter makes it possible to control each LED individually on the self-adhesive strip of only 10 mm wide. The strip is easy to control with an Arduino Uno, Mega or a Teensy. A non-real-time operating system such as the Raspberry Pi or other similar systems cannot control this strip itself due to the required timings. Suggest adaptation
The WS2813 chip is the successor of the well-known WS2812 RGB LED. In addition, the LED contains two signal lines so that a broken chip has no influence on the rest of the strip. Unfortunately, when 2 LEDs are defective in succession, this does have an effect. In addition, the WS2813 has an integrated capacitor and resistor so that they are no longer required.
The strip is sold per 5 meters, you get a complete reel with a connector on both sides.
