Pixel Protocol Overview: MBI6020

This pixel protocol was designed by Macroblock in Taiwan. Scrambled-PWM technology enhances pulse width modulation by scrambling the “on” time into several “on” periods. This increases the effective PWM rate, allowing MBI6020 pixels to look good on almost every camera. The control circuit comes in a SOP16 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.
