Adafruit DotStar Digital LED Strips:

NeoPixel LEDs are the bee’s knees, but in a few scenarios they come up short…connecting odd microcontrollers that can’t match their strict timing, or fast-moving persistence-of-vision displays. Adafruit DotStar strips deliver high speed PWM and an easy-to-drive two-wire interface, bridging the gaps in the spectrum of awesome.

The basic idea behind DotStars and NeoPixels is the same: a continuous string of indivudally-addressable RGB LEDs, driven by a microcontroller. The way each goes about it is a little different. DotStars aren’t necessarily a better thing in every situation…there are tradeoffs, each has its pros and cons to consider…
