The product is available in our warehouse. You can place the order and you will receive it according to the shipping method.
On Demand products are items that we bring to our customers through an order.
So place a normal order and we will ask for them to our suppliers, and will ship to you in just one shipment to save costs. The period may vary from 1 to 3 weeks. When the order is complete, we will ship it to you!.
Currently, there is no stock, but we will receive it soon. You can buy it and we will ship the order as soon as it comes back available (normally from 1 to 3 weeks).
Orders that include an On Demand or Back Order item will be shipped when they are available again in one shipment. This means the order will take from 1 to 3 weeks to be shipped once the order is placed You will be notified when adding a backorder product in the cart. If you want to receive first the items in-stock, please, place two different orders separating the in-stock and On Demand or Back Order items.
This product is only available for search (tutorials, schematics...). They can not be purchased.

Digital RGB LED Weatherproof Strip- 1meter
* Required fields
These LED strips are fun and glowy. There are 32 RGB LEDs per meter, and you can control each LED individually! Yes, that's right, this is the digitally-addressable type of LED strip. You can set the color of each LED's red, green and blue component with 7-bit PWM precision (so 21-bit color per pixel). The LEDs are controlled by shift-registers that are chained up down the strip so you can shorten or lengthen the strip. Only 2 digital output pins are required to send data down. The PWM is built into each chip so once you set the color you can stop talking to the strip and it will continue to PWM all the LEDs for you.
The LPD8806 chip has built in 1.2 MHz high speed 7-bit PWM for each channel - that means it can do 21-bit color per LED (way more than the eye can easily discern). Once you set the brightness level for the LEDs, your microcontroller can go off and do other things, no need to continuously update it, or clock it.
The strip is made of flexible PCB material, and comes with a weatherproof sheathing. You can cut this stuff pretty easily with wire cutters, there are cut-lines every 2.5"/6.2cm (2 LEDs each). Solder to the 0.1" copper pads and you're good to go. Of course, you can also connect strips together to make them longer, just watch how much current you need!You must use a 5V DC power supply to power these strips, do not use higher than 6V or you will destroy the entire strip.
