Addressable LED Lighting
Individually addressable LED lighting refers to applications where every single LED can be individually commanded to perform the required dimming or on/off operations, independent of the circuit to which the LEDs are connected. The LEDs used in these applications each have a companion IC which gives them independence and intelligence. Each LED is assigned an address so that it can be individually controlled using a digital communication protocol. Individually addressing and controlling LED lighting nodes makes it possible to implement sophisticated control algorithms and allows for cutting-edge interactivity in LED mapping. The individually addressable LEDs can identify and respond to the specific control signals intended for them. This level of control enables different colors and different brightnesses to be displayed on multiple LED nodes simultaneously. Individually addressable LED lighting allows dynamic lighting scenes to be created across a string of LEDs or multiple LED lights. Individually addressable LED lights, such as LED strips
, LED matrix panels, LED pixels and LED bars, are usually designed as designed RGB, RGBW or other multi-color systems. By combining different individually controllable color LEDs within the same package, a vibrant spectrum of color that cycles at varying speeds and in different color sequences can be generated for decorative, atmospheric or human centric lighting applications.
