Pixel Protocol Overview: MBI6023

This pixel protocol was designed by Macroblock in Taiwan. MBI6023 is very similar to MBI6020, but also offers the ability to drive up to 4x RGB pixels per chip, and a slightly higher PWM rate. Scrambled-PWM technology enhances pulse width modulation by scrambling the “on” time into several “on” periods. This increases the effective PWM rate, allowing MBI6023 pixels to look good on almost every camera. The control circuit comes in a SOP24 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.
