LED Pixel Protocol NS108E

Overview

Very similar to HD108, NS108E offers all the same features, but at a slightly lower PWM rate. The control circuit and LEDs are integrated in a 5050 SMD package, which provides a small physical footprint for each pixel.

Current Control

NS108E has the ability to digitally control the current of the connected LEDs. Use the 5-bit current control per color to lower the brightness without sacrificing resolution, and tune the current of individual colors, allowing for more accurate color mixing. This individual current control can be set when configuring your PixLite Mk3 controller.

Considerations for Use

Advantages

  • Presence of a clock allows for faster refresh rates
  • High PWM rate allows for filming these pixels with cameras up to 134fps
  • 16 bits of data for each color makes dimming curves very smooth

Disadvantages

  • Limited to 5V, causing short cable lengths
  • No redundancy in data
