Replacement: BOB-11820. The new rev of this breakout now comes standard with the addressable WS2812 LED installed, go check it out! This page is for reference only.
Description: This is a breakout board for the WS2801 RGB LED controller, the same IC used in our addressable RGB LED strips. The board comes with the chip on one side and an RGB LED on the other. Several of these breakouts can be chained together to form a display or an addressable string. Voltage, ground, clock and data are broken out as input on one side and output on the other to standard 0.1" spaced headers.
