Created one. (Updated 12/12, added package with longer pads)   5050WS2811.lbr

Yes, for the individual led option, 20 cents per led (each is a rgb led with builtin controller).   For the tape/reel version, It is sold by the meter, has 60 leds per meter, so cost breaks down to

Just FYI, parts are here, strips were tested and are OK. I didn't expect them to arrive so quickly, so I am not sure if I will be able to ship tomorrow.     Those are very cool LEDs BTW, one wir

Hm - did you probe the pins on the strip to the device? Should be pretty easy to match those up.

Looks like each requires a capacitor - any idea what value? I saw 104 on the datasheet, not sure what value that is though. We'd need to put that on any booster or BOB (although I see you've added the pads on the one you put together).

The LEDs are working using pin assignment from post #75, but they are not working using datasheet's pin out.

If you look at the connections in the close-up picture, you will see that the datasheet is wrong, all anodes are on pin 5.

Also, pin 3 has 2 wires, which I think is logic's power and SET pin pulled high (slow mode.)

The caps are 0.1 bypass caps.

Word on IRC was that the last batch was 60 LED/m waterproof, which is the one I think I want.


Nope. I just got mine, and the strips are definitely not waterproof.


Which ones?

60LED/m non-waterproof or 30LED/m waterproof?

I would probably go for few meters of the 30/m one, which would be around ~$11


Hmmm... I might go for a couple meters of that as well! :)
