Greeled just sent me info about a new 32-bit RGBW strip (GE60 RGBW8812A).

“The data protocol being used is unipolar NRZ communication mode. The 32-bit data is transmitted from the controller to DIN of the first element, and if it is accepted it is extracted pixel to pixel. After an internal data latch, the remaining data is passed through the internal amplification circuit and sent out on the DO port to the remaining pixels. The pixel is reset after the end of DIN. Using automatic shaping forwarding technology makes the number of cascaded pixels without signal transmission only limited by signal transmission speed.”

I’ve noticed that Adafruit (Phil Burgess) introduced RGB-W support in their Neopixel lib

wOffset = (t >> 6) & 0b11;
rOffset = (t >> 4) & 0b11;
gOffset = (t >> 2) & 0b11;
bOffset = t & 0b11;

@Daniel_Garcia can this be implemented in FastLED as well? I already have 1m of those in my treasure box …

I have a set of rgbw strips on order. Getting support worked in across the board will take some time, however, as there is a lot optimized around three 3-byte rgb structure.
