This is a SMD version of the WS2812B that is widely used as a programmable addressable LED. This LED supports serial addressable integrated system where multiple leds can be connected via a string and each individual LEDs can be controlled independently.
WS2812B LED requires 3.5V-7.5V to operate and could produce RGB led colors.
Through hole version of WS2812B is also available in Punoscho.

- 3.5V-7.5V DC Operation | 12mA max.
- Shift Register Programmable RGB LED/Lamp.
- 800 kHz Frequency response.
- 5050 Package
- Each color having 256 Dimming level for superior control
Timing Diagram/Waveform of WS2812B
The L1/L2/L3 are LEDs. 5V voltage and GND is provided in each LEDs. The microcontroller sends data to the DI (Data In) pin and the data gets transferred to the next LED via DO (Data Out) pin, serially.
