Hi @timb !
Hope you did not try to eat these M&Ms yet…
I also want to use the APA106 LEDs (Neopixels) with built-in WS2811 control IC for “status boards”, setting each LED to a specific colour depending on the applicable status.
I wonder if I can omit the level shifter, mentioned in the library text.
You are obviously not using any 3.3v => 5V level shifter with these “PIXELBIT” LEDs.
Are they 3.3V types? (I could not find them and your above link is broken)
Did you try the “neopixels” also without level shifter?
Thanks already for any feedback on this!
