3587 LED Circuit

by davija on Thu Jun 10, 2021 8:16 pm

I have just started working with the 3587 dotstar LED product and was wondering if it is recommended / required to place power decoupling capacitors next to each LED. Typically it is indicated in the datasheet in a sample circuit, but the sample circuit in the 3587 datasheet does not show them and says nothing about them.

Thanks.

Make sure you read the datasheet carefully as the pixels are prone to damage if they are not stored correctly.
