Addressable Led


individually addressable LEDS have a tiny microcontroller on each of the LEDs to allows each one to light up with a unique color and brightness. The strips have a positive voltage wire, a ground, and a data wire. Each time the data reaches an led it is read and passed down the strip to the next led. first chip reads the incoming address as LED0, and then performs the instructions for LED0, it also passes the data on to the next chip after increasing the counter value by 1.
