After seeing how smart you guys were when it came to helping me through my last issue, I figured this was the best place to ask about another.
So I have 200 leds (4 strands of WS2811's) all connected together. The problem is that while they should all be blinking one color (yellow), they start to turn red as they reach the middle, then super red by the time it gets to the end. I did a bit of research and learned that this is was probably because of something called voltage drop. The problem is that my head is swimming from all the ideas about fixing it. I've read about hooking up a power supply to both ends. Using a single supply with the positive at one end of the LED and the negative at the other. I've read about a power supply with more amps. I've also read about connecting the power directly at different points of the strip (though I'm not quite sure how that would work).
So basically I think I know what the issue is, but have no idea what the best idea would be for actually solving it. But I know guys always have great ideas.
Here's a little diagram of things right now. It's just the 200 leds connecting to the arduino which is being powered by a 5volt psu.
Thanks in advance!
