The APA102C chips are easier to control and offer faster (20kHz) PWM rates for flicker free performance.Each LED on the strip is 5050 size, and has an embedded microcontroller inside it which controls brightness levels, and interprets the data you send it. Each strip needs two wires to control all LEDs, one clock and one data. This arrangement makes it easier to use with slower devices like the Arduino Uno.

Power supply to the strip is 5V. It's wise to consider that each LED can consume around 60mA at full brightness - multiply that by 144 and you have over 8.5A, or about 43W of power dissipation. We recommend a relatively meaty power supply, with connections every 1 meter on a long run strip.

At the ends of the strips are male/female 4 pin JST-SH plugs which allow multiple strips to be connected. The power lines are broken out onto separate wires for easy access.
