This compact driver solves two problems: it controls the WS2812 and lowers the incoming voltage to 3.3 or 5 volts.
LEDs are used to to decorate our homes, use them in advertising and interactive exhibits, or are even in music installations and Ambilight systems.
The WS2812 driver simplifies the connection of LED strips to the control electronics. Insert the strip’s wires into the terminal block, tighten the screws and connect the module to an Arduino or Iskra controller. Now your LEDs are ready to go.
This module not only controls the LEDs, but also eliminates extra wires. A TPS562200 step-down converter from Texas Instruments is provided on the board. It is needed to power the control board from the LED strip. The chip will lower the input from 5-14 V to either 3.3 or 5, depending on the position of the jumper.
The driver would also be useful in cases where it is necessary to simply supply a large load on 3.3 or 5 V from a 12 V power supply.
The module is connected via contacts and screw terminals.
