Date:Jul 02, 2019


Brief introduction of WS2813 and WS2815


The WS2813 strip light is an updated version of the WS2812B, similar to how the WS2812B is an improved version of the WS2811, but with break continue function , while one IC is broken, the signal can still pass through.

 

The WS2815 strip light is DC12v input instead of DC5v input, it is the main difference,

You may ask , which designed like this ? With 12v input , the WS2815 LED strip can run longer than WS2812B strip light because of less voltage drop.

Please see WS2813 programmable strip light, it is 5v input
