LED Pixel Protocol TM1829

Overview

This pixel protocol was designed by Titan Micro Electronics in China. TM1829 is an improved design of its previous versions, TM1803 and TM1804, using improved optics to achieve a higher PWM rate and a different data timing method to achieve faster data transfer rates. The control circuit comes in a SOP8 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.

Current Control

TM1829 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

  • Up to 24V, allowing for very long cable lengths
  • Very high PWM rate allows for filming these pixels with cameras up to 234fps
  • Faster data-transfer rates than TM1803 and TM1804

Disadvantages

  • Data-only restricts refresh rates to be limited by the speed of the protocol, which can be slow
  • Only 8 bits of data for each color makes dimming curves less smooth
  • No redundancy in data
