UPDATED PRODUCT – 12mm Diffused Digital RGB LED Pixels (Strand of 25)

12Mmledpixel Lrg-1

UPDATED PRODUCT – 12mm Diffused Digital RGB LED Pixels (Strand of 25). We just got a shipment of new 12mm LED pixels and these are a nice improvement over the older type. Instead of the 15-bit color LPD6803, these use the 24-bit color WS2801 chipset! Another nice thing about the new LED chip is that it has a built in PWM driver, so your microcontroller/Arduino does not have to pulse the clock pin all the time to keep the color mixing going. We even have them at the same price as before, at $1.80 per LED!
