LED Pixel Protocol SM16716

Overview

This pixel protocol was designed by Sunmoon Microelectronics in China. SM16716 is an improved design of its previous version, SM16712, using a clock line to achieve faster refresh rates and improved optics to achieve a higher PWM rate. The control circuit comes in a SOP16 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.

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 84fps
  • Up to 24V, allowing for very long cable lengths

Disadvantages

  • Only 8 bits of data for each color makes dimming curves less smooth
  • No redundancy in data
