The WS2812B RGB LED Module is a small module with BIG color.

The module has a special LED on board that contains three separate LEDs red, green, and blue as well as a smart control IC that can individually drive each LED. 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. This protocol allows many modules to be daisy chained together so that one microcontroller can control the whole lot 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. Caution these LEDs are extremely bright! You might want to avoid looking directly at them up close when lit.

Key Features


  • 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
  • Application Ideas:

  • Holiday decorations
  • Multi color status LED for your project
  • Color changing robotic eyes
  • Note: The WS2812B is designed for operation with high speed 5 volt devices.

    It requires a 3.5 to 5.3 volt power supply, and data signals that reach at least 70 of the power supply voltage, so a 3.6 volt or higher signal is required when powered from a 5 volt supply. To use a 3.3 volt signal, including those generated by the Propeller microcontroller, we recommend powering the WS2812B module from a 3.5 to 4.75 volt power supply.

    To meet the signal timing, we recommend a microcontroller running at 15 MIPS or faster. The BASIC Stamp series is not capable of generating WS2812B compatible signals.
