This pixel protocol was designed by Sunmoon Microelectronics in China. SM16716 is an improved design of its previous version, SM16712, using a clock line to achieve faster refresh rates and improved optics to achieve a higher PWM rate. The control circuit comes in a SOP16 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.
Output Pixel Voltage
|5 - 24V|
|Up to 84fps|
Data Transfer Rate
Redundant Data Line
Considerations for Use
- Presence of a clock allows for faster refresh rates
- High PWM rate allows for filming these pixels with cameras up to 84fps
- Up to 24V, allowing for very long cable lengths
- Only 8 bits of data for each color makes dimming curves less smooth
- No redundancy in data
