NEW PRODUCT – Side Light NeoPixel LED PCB Bar – 60 LEDs – 120 LED/meter – 500mm Long


Blinded by the light? Tell “The Boss” not to worry, especially with this ultra thin Side Light NeoPixel LED PCB Bar! Fancy side light LED strips are a great alternative for folks who have loved and used Adafruit NeoPixel strips for a few years but want gorgeous, glowy light emitting at 120 degrees.

We already have flexible LEDs, so these bars are more on the rigid/firm spectrum of LED strips. They’re made on a single long FR4 PCB, so they’ve got some mechanical stability, you can run them along a thin edge. They look fantastic as accent lighting, back lighting, edge lighting, etc! Note that the FR4 is rigid but requires support so it doesn’t droop and crack. It’s not intended to be bent or curved at all, and if you do so you may crack the copper traces.

This LED Bar is half a meter long (50cm / ~19.5″) with 120 LED/meter pitch, and features 60 addressable NeoPixel LEDs. You can use any ‘NeoPixel’ compatible library or microcontroller to drive these LEDs just like you expect.

These bars come with a 3-pin JST SM connector on both ends, you can remove these easily with a soldering iron. For the power wires, you will probably want a 2.1mm DC jack to wire in, so you can connect one of our 5V wall adapters to power it.

We have a tutorial showing wiring, power usage calculations, example code for usage, etc. Please check it out!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
