4X4 RGB Click Board
The 4x4 RGB Click Board™ is an add-on board which helps the user to add a colourful RGB LED matrix to the design. This accessory board comes equipped with a matrix of 16 very bright WS2812 RGB LEDs and a MCP1826 low dropout regulator. Each of these 16 LEDs further comprises of three single coloured LEDs (Red, Green and Blue), and a control chip. Put together, there are a total of 48 individual LEDs in 4x4 RGB Click Board™. The control circuit and RGB chip have been integrated in a package of 5050 components to keep pixel point in complete control. 4x4 RGB Click Board™ features a jumper (zero Ω resistor) for setting the I/O logic level. It is by default soldered in the 3.3V position but can make use of either a 3.3V or 5V power supply. The LED matrix is connected to the target board microcontroller through the MikroBUS RST pin.
4x4 RGB Click Board™ can be used to create animations which can be scrolled on a computer screen. It is also usable for producing spellbinding displays of colourful graphics on electronic billboards, signs, and similar interfaces.

WS2812 Intelligent Control LED Integrated Light Source
WS2812 is an intelligent control LED integrated light source which features a control circuit and a RGB chip, both integrated in a package of 5050 components. Apart from a 12V voltage programmable constant current control part and a precision internal oscillator, WS2812 also includes a signal reshaping amplification drive circuit and an intelligent digital port data latch.
Low Dropout Regulator (LDO): MCP1826
MCP1826 is a 1A, ceramic output cap stable, Low Dropout Regulator (LDO). It features low output voltage, with shutdown and power good functions (fixed output version only). MCP1826 is part of the family of LDOs that includes 500 mA MCP1825 and 1.5A MCP1827. This Low Dropout Regulator is made available for you in thermally enhanced DDPAK-5 and TO-220-5 packages as well as space-efficient SOT223-5 package.
