Falcon PiCap ws2812 compatiable? (newbie)
« on: August 22, 2018, 07:35:18 AM »
I am new, so this questions is probably easily answered, but I just wanted to make sure. The Falcon PiCap specifically says it can control WS2811 pixels. Can it also control WS2812/WS2812B pixels? Before I go buying pixels I want to make sure I am purchasing ones that will work with the Falcon PiCap.

Thank you!

Yes.   2811/2812/2813/2815/2818 all use the same protocol, sometimes refererred to as "281x"
