I have received my 1st production prototypes of the WS2812 2020 LED strip I designed. These are made on 4mm wide x 150mm long strip. Each contains 32 pixels. The strips are flexible and cut-able at any point on the strip. I’m running a whole bunch of tests on them ATM. Rough power draw for this animation for 10 min was 27mA and for a 3535 strip of the same number of pixels it was 58ma! These 2020 pixels do get warmer, I assume because their surface area is smaller. Ill be doing a full production run in the next few months via some sort of crowd funding campaign to get the funds to fab these in huge numbers.
