I am looking to use around 130 RGB LEDs from an addressable strip (probably WS2812B / 5050). This will obviously consume a significant amount of power at up to 60mA per LED.
Is there any reason why I cant simply break the LED strip into say 10x 13 LEDs with different or shared and multiplexed data-line and cycle through these in quick succession?
Another method I thought of would be to simply multiplex by addressing every 10th LED and "multiplex"them in this fashion (ie. 1,11,21 then 2,12,22 then 3,13,23 etc…).
Are there preferred method of achieving something like this or am I on the right track. Any gotchas to watch out for?
