DOTSTAR color sequence of individual parts is different than

by galengs on Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:13 pm

We purchased a DOTSAR strip, and also some individual DOTSTAR parts (Adafruit PN 2343). The color sequence is different.
The strip follows the datasheet (Shiji Lighting APA102C). The sequence in the programming details for an LED frame is "Global | Blue | Green | Red."
For the individual parts, the sequence is "Global | Red | Blue | Green." We took some closeup pictures of the parts, and you can see that the LED emitters are in different positions that match this discrepancy.

We contacted Shiji Lighting and they claim they have not build any devices with this anomalous sequence. I have the following questions:
1. Has anyone else observed this?
2. Can someone at Adafruit check their inventory and see if the individual parts are the same or a different sequence from the strips?
3. If we order more 2343 parts what are we going to receive? Are they going to change again?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

My second strip photo didn't get posted, so here it is.
