Different Addressable LEDs Comparison

Comparison LED Strips: WS2812B, SK6812, APA102, NS107S All LEDs are SMD5050 to compare (they also have 3535/2020/1515 size). There are RGB and RGBW variants for some of them (W of RGBW is used for an additional white LED 3000k/4000k/6000k CCT). These LEDs fall into two categories:WS2812B, SK6812:3wires One wire to control LED (asynchronous) Refresh rate of 400Hz, restricted data rate of 800Hz Not suitable for POV (Persistence of Vision) applications (too slow in refreshing) Interrupt compatibilityAPA102, NS107S4wires 2 wire SPI pin (CLK & DAT) (synchronous) No strict timing necessary, [...]

2020 Led Strips Applications

The LED strips is very easy using decorative lighting materials. People are very happy using this light strip when they light up their rooms, cars and many things they want to light. The effect is awesome! LED strip has a variety of applications. Here we are listing 21 COOL LED light strip ideas that you can work on using LED strip. LED strip has many kinds. Single-color, CCT change, RGB led strip, RGBW led strip and Magic color led strip. We have better know [...]

Which addressable LEDs is most suitable?

  LEDs come in lots of different shapes and sizes. For Analog addressable LEDs, where the whole strip becomes a single color, choice is mostly about the size, wattage and density of the strip. For addressable LEDs it’s also important to make sure you get the correct chip inside of the LED strip so that you can also control it. Using this chip a addressable LED strip can control each individual LED on the strip and give them all [...]

The voltage drop of APA102 and NS107S

Below is one real tested for 144leds NS107S and 144LEDs APA102. You can see obviously voltage drop for APA102 after 30leds, after 0.5m no signal and all leds turn red. for NS107s, only the end has a little voltage drop. also NS107S is brightness than apa102.

Tests and comparisons of WS2813, WS2812B, WS2815 and similar digital LED strips

Digital LED strip with individual RGB (W) control has long been included in our lives as a decorative decoration. The popularity of such products is growing every day, and even large Chinese online stores sometimes can not cope with the volume of orders in the pre-holiday season and not only. For this reason, a lot of low-quality goods and fakes appeared on the market. In this publication I want to share my experience in using and testing the digital [...]

NS107S 30pixels led strip project in the feast of St Josep

NS107S 30pixels led strip project it’s for the fire show( Malta freedom day ) at the end of march friday in the feast of St Joseph. This project start from our client shared a video,After check some informations we recommend the NS107S led strip, because it is the top quality, better performance than ws2813, so we suggest customer use NS107S to replace ws2813 led strip. this strip is 30leds/m, 6m per roll, black PCB with silicone waterproof.Contact us, jason@newstarleds.com  

NS107S 2020 LED Display

Customer used NS107S 2020 addressable LEDs to make one big transparent led display, looks great! (Newstar is the orginal IC factory, they named NS107S, Hida bought our 107S IC to make LEDs, so named “HD107S”)NS107S 2020 transparent led display video

About NS107s, APA102, APA107 and SK9822

Do you know the difference of APA102, APA107,NS107s and SK9822? APA102: 20+ kHz PWM. APA107: 9 kHz PWM. NS107s: 27kHz PWM (the upgrade of APA107). SK9822: 4.7 kHz PWM. Newstar study the APA107/NS107S based on APA102 technology, so APA107 and NS107S is same protocol with APA102, same pcb/same controller, can replace APA102 directly. And APA107 is better than SK9822, but almost same cost. NS107S is much better APA102, but the cost is cheaper. NS107s pixel led chip with PWM refresh Rate 27KHZ and transmission rate 40MHZ Apa107 [...]
