LED Pixel Protocol LPD8806

Overview

This pixel protocol was designed by Qiancai Electronics in China. Very similar to its previous version, LPD6803, LPD8806 provides 8 bits of data, for better color resolution and smoother dimming curves. It also uses improved optics to achieve a higher PWM rate. The control circuit comes in a SOP16 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.

Considerations for Use

Advantages

  • Presence of a clock allows for faster refresh rates
  • Very high PWM rate allows for filming these pixels with cameras up to 134fps
  • Up to 12V, allowing for long cable lengths

Disadvantages

  • While better than 5 bits, 8 bits of data for each color still makes dimming curves less smooth
  • No redundancy in data
