WS2812 16 Bit RGB LED Matrix
You can create animations, and games, or even incorporate them into a fun e-textiles project. On top of all that, thanks to its flexible backing, this LED Matrix can be bent and bowed to fit onto almost any curvy surface. These panels require a 5V low voltage input for power which needs to be able to source a good amount of current.
Each LED is capable of drawing as much as 60mA (at peak brightness the matrix can draw just over 3.5 Amps at 5 Volts), this adds up so it is suggested to use a 5V 2A power supply.
There are two 3-pin connection ports to the wiring board. Solder wires to the input port and provide 5VDC to the +5V and ground pins, then connect the DIN pin to your microcontroller and make a common ground from the 5V power supply to the microcontroller/Arduino.
