WS2811 WS2812 Digital Strips
- May 16, 2016 -

Here are the differences among WS2801, WS2811, WS2812 and WS2812B digital strips.

Let’s learn the IC first.

1.WS2811 IC

WS2811 IC is also built out of the 5050 RGB leds, this is similar with WS2801 IC,

While ws2811 IC only have 8 legs(left side 4legs and right side 4 legs). We can tell WS2801 and WS2811 IC easily from the legs.

WS2811 IC is single line IC, that means its transmission and stability can’t match with WS2801 IC.

While 30 Leds/m WS2811 Led Digital Strip Waterproof IP65 Pixel Light 12V and Pixel Rgb Led Strip;white Pcb;dc12v 20pixel With 60led/meter;5050 Smd Ip67 Digital Pixel Rgb Led Strip have big advantages in prices.

48Leds/m 16ICs/m WS2811 SMD5050 RGB 12V Led Pixel Strip is also popular.

WS2811 digital strips are mostly made DC12V, DC5V is not conventional.

2.WS2812 IC

WS2812 IC is also WS2811 IC. We build WS2811 IC in 5050 RGB led, that’s called WS2812 IC.

WS2812 IC is IC built-in leds. Thus we can’t see IC on the PCB. This is the only difference with WS2811 IC. While  32 Pixels Per Meter Rgb Full Color SMD5050 Ws2812b Ws2811 Digital Led Strip is more pupular than Ws2811 Rgb Led Pixel Strip 32LED/M Waterproof 5V 5050 RGB SMD.

WS2812 digital strips are mostly made DC5V, DC12V is not conventional.

3.WS2812B IC

WS2812B IC is the same with WS2812 IC. The prices are also near.

The only difference is WS2812 leds have 6 angles while WS2812B leds only have 4 legs.

Angles are not the same with legs. Legs are on the IC, angles are on the leds.

WS2812 digital strips are mostly made DC5V, DC12V is not conventional.

WS2812B IC is quite similar with SK6812 IC.

5V 60led/m Addressable 60 Pixels Ws2812b 2811 IC Programmable Rgb Led Strip and Ws2812b 144 Led Pixel Programmable 5050 Led Strip Tape Addressable are very popular.

WS2812 digital strips are mostly made DC5V, DC12V is not conventional.
