Hello community, I am a user of FastLED and addressible LED from Taiwan.
I am a friend of APA company in Taiwan because I use their apa102 5050 and 2020 in my poi project, I think the company is the original of those controller-integrated-3/4wire-LED, like apa102. Recenly I just had some talk and the co-owned and he gave me a lot of samples of their new package 1515, more than I can test.
I think it is a good idea to share with more people who are good at using those, so I am asking here.
Any friend here is using with apa102 want some samples of 1515 package?
the specific part is APA-102-1515-256-6
1515 means 1.5mm*1.5mm in dimensions, probably the smallest of apa102 LED.
not sure what 256 refers too, but it is the one with no flickering when global brightness is 31. and 8192 one has flickers bad with POV.
6 means it has 6 pads, better footprint for layout. some had 8 pads and not easy for layouts.
this is the reference datasheet from their web.
p.s if this in any case against the community rules please warn me, thanks
