WS2812 RGB Flexible Panel – 8 x 32 LED


WS2812 RGB Flexible Panel – 8 x 32 LED


SKU: LED-079 - Mfg Part Number: WS2812P-8x32


This panel of WS2812 LEDs is an configured in an 8 x 32 arrangement. Each of the 256 LEDs can be individually controlled; meaning, these panels can be used to scroll colorful messages, create interesting light patterns, or draw symbols, and more. The panel has a chainable design and multiple panels can be used to form larger displays.

Since each LED has its own driver, there is no need for power transistors. Simply apply 5V DC power, and provide a digital signal and that’s it! Due to the frequency of the data signal, these require a real time microcontroller such as an AVR, Arduino, PIC, mbed, ect. They will not work with Linux based micro-computers, Netduinos, or the Basic Stamp.

To use these LEDs: Connect your digital pin to the “IN” pad (data in) on the back of the module and supply power. The FastLED library for Arduino is a great starting point!

Keep in mind that these panels draw quite a bit of current. With 256 WS2812 LEDs it is possible to pull upwards of 15A with all LEDs set to display white at full brightness. There are three separate power connections on the back, we advise using all of them.

Please Note: While these are flexible, we don’t recommend them for repeated flexing. We do not guarantee these against broken traces or LEDs caused due to repeated flexing, bending too far, or folding. Handle with care!
