Introduction

Working with addressable LED strips, we’ve found that the extra components required to communicate with and power them complicate designs and limit the options for how they can be used. Each chipset requires its own special protocol and supporting hardware components. This is where the AllPixel comes in. Think of it as a video card for your LED strips.

The AllPixel is a small (2.7″ x 0.9″), device that provides easy USB control of all the major programmable LED strips. It is compatible with Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms, and capable of driving up to 680 LEDs at high frame rates. The following chipsets are currently supported:

  • LPD8806
  • WS2801
  • WS2812 (NeoPixel)
  • WS2811 (400 kHz)
  • TM1809/TM1804
  • TM1803
  • UCS1903
  • SM16716
