The WS2812B RGB LED Module is a small module with BIG color. The module has a special LED on board that contains three individual LEDs - red, green, and blue - as well as a smart control IC that can individually drive each LED. These LEDs are found in NeoPixel strips and more. Each color has 256 intensity levels which allows the module to produce 24-bit color, or more than 16 million colors. Each module is instructed by using a special serial protocol which allows many modules to be daisy chained together, so one microcontroller can control a whole string of LEDs with a single data signal. Any number of these modules can be chained together by connecting one module's data-out (DO) pin to another's data-in (DI) pin.
This 10-pack of WS2812B RGB Modules will let you light up many different projects.
Caution - these LEDs are extremely bright! You might want to avoid looking directly at them up close when lit.
String many together to make an array of individually addressable lights
With 24-bit color, each module can display more than 16 million unique colors of the rainbow
The module's small size is breadboard friendly with 0.1" header spacing
Control all LEDs in a chain with a single I/O pin

Note: This module requires a 5 volt supply to work. Devices that interface at 3.3 V, such as the Propeller, can still communicate with the module, but the module will need to be supplied with 5 volts on the 5V pin. Additionally, the serial communication protocol the module utilizes relies heavily on strict timing constraints. Thus, the BASIC Stamp module cannot reliably communicate with the WS2812B RGB LED Module.
