UV NeoPixel bare modules

by Sparklebeard on Mon May 03, 2021 5:23 pm

Hello!

I am looking to find the UV/UV/UV 5050 LED packages (5050UV395 on their data sheet) used on the UV NeoPixel strips, but I can't seem to find the bare LEDs available in the shop, and I haven't been able to find the modules on DigiKey either.

I've been working on a somewhat esoteric led matrix project that uses white, UV, and IR leds, and so far I have been cutting sections of white DotStar strips and UV Neopixel strips and attaching them to perf board. I want to move to getting custom PCBs printed, but I haven't been able to find the nice UV packages to pair with the WS2811 chips.

Does Adafruit sell these bar UV/UV/UV LED packages? If not, is there any chance you know what to look for on DigiKey/Mouser to find them?

Partially answering my own question, it seems the form factor I need for the three diodes in one package is PLCC-6. I have found mystery Amazon sellers with these PLCC-6 UV blacklight LEDs for suspiciously low prices but am still interested to find out whether they could be available in the Adafruit shop.
