Breadboard-friendly RGB Smart NeoPixel - Pack of 4

This is the easiest way possible to add small, bright RGB pixels to your project. Adafruit took the same technology from their Flora NeoPixels and made them breadboard friendly, with two rows of 3 x 0.1" spaced header on each side for easy soldering, chaining and breadboarding.

This is the easiest way possible to add small, bright RGB pixels to your project. Adafruit took the same technology from their Flora NeoPixels and made them breadboard friendly, with two rows of 3 x 0.1" spaced header on each side for easy soldering, chaining and breadboarding. These ultra-bright LEDs have a constant-current driver cooked right into the LED package! The pixels are chainable - so you only need 1 pin/wire to control as many LEDs as you like. 

These pixels have full 24-bit color ability with PWM taken care of by the controller chip. Since the LED is so bright, you need less current/power to get the effects you want. The driver is constant current so its OK if your battery power changes or fluctuates a little. 

Each pixel draws as much as 60mA (all three RGB LEDs on for full brightness white). An Arduino can drive up to 500 pixels at 30 FPS (it will run out of RAM after that). Using ribbon cable you can string these up to 6" apart (after that, you might get power droops and data corruption) 

Each order comes with 4 individually controllable pixels. The photos show the pixels with headers soldered on, but the pixels do not come with any headers.

Adafruit's detailed NeoPixel Uberguide has everything you need to use NeoPixels in any shape and size. Including ready-to-go library & example code for the Arduino UNO/Duemilanove/Diecimila, Flora/Micro/Leonardo, Trinket/Gemma, Arduino Due & Arduino Mega/ADK (all versions)

To interface with 3.3V logic devices, use the SN74HCT245 Octal Bus Transceivers with 3-state outputs available from here
