What do breadboard NeoPixels do?
This pack of four individual, discreet and easy to use RGB LEDs can be easily applied to a breadboard for helping to develop your projects. Should you want to make them more of a permanent fixture you can solder cables in place of the header pins. The voltage, ground, and data pins are clearly labelled to ensure the NeoPixels are connected the correct way, first time. In addition to this there is also a data out pin which allows you to connect more NeoPixels in series.

What is a NeoPixel?
A NeoPixel is a 5mm by 5mm square LED that can host 24-bit colour. To put that in perspective that’s 16,777,216 different shades of colour available to you with each LED, mixing red, green and blue. They use built-in drivers so there’s minimal preparation and next to no coding required to get going.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you can speak to all the LEDs individually, telling them what colour and brightness to display. They also ensure no matter how many LEDs are active or changing, you will always get the same quality of colour, and the same brightness throughout.

These NeoPixels only require 3v – 9v to power and at full brightness use 60mA per LED. In addition to this you only need to use one digital pin to control a range of NeoPixels, making it very easy to implement into any project. You can find out even more about NeoPixels and best practice here.

What library will I need to use?
NeoPixels can be easily controlled using Adafruits NeoPixel library available here. An Arduino library allows quick and easy programming for a vast range of projects. In the case of the NeoPixel library, it allows you to quickly manipulate any number of NeoPixel LEDs individually.
