This pixel protocol was designed by World Semi in China. WS2812 offers many of the benefits the WS28xx series is famous for, as well as being the first in the series to offer an integrated LED design. Typically, users will choose WS2813 or above for higher quality, however WS2812 is still one of the most common protocols for pixel lighting displays. The control circuit and LEDs are integrated in a 5050 SMD package, which provides a small physical footprint for each pixel.
Are you looking for WS2812 pixel drivers that work with Art-Net or sACN? All PixLite Mk1, Mk2, and Mk3 products support WS2812 as an available Pixel IC type, so get in touch with us to find out how the lighting specialists at Advatek can support you in your pixel lighting project.
