Hio, 

 

im making some light decoration for my home and outsides and i am trying to be "fancy" and "over complicate" things, like a true engineer. So i am looking for a RGBWW(rgb+white+warm white) smd modules (5050 package or something similar).

i know i can just slap on a RGBW module and add a small warm white COB led, but i notices that there are many commercial led strips, with a RGBWW, all in one chip. I checked mouser, farnell, alibaba, ebay, lcsc, and many other and cant find this modules. 

 

Anyone knows where else to look?

This topic has a solution.

No - that is the exact opposite of a true engineer!

 

An engineer is someone who can make for 2p what any fool could make for £2

Well my experience is different. I come up with a simple design that would work like a charm, and then either boss or costumer makes it so complicated and over bloated with features, that i need few days just to figure out, if what they want, is even doable.

Ok, i miss-explained myself. Not "like a true engineer", but "like a true engineer project" :P

Do you have a link to the strip?

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!

This is how it looks:

This is it.

 

Actually, i have been browsing for last few hours, all the LED strips that are advertised as RGBWW only have either RGB+WARM white led in one chip, or and RGB chip+Cool/Warm white LED chip on them. So far i ahvent foudn single led strip taht has LED chip liek hte one in the picture, with RGB+cool white+warm white in 1 case xDD

just buy a x length of that strip....

you most likely never going to be any cheaper than buying that strip as you just simply do not have the volumes/quantities to get a low price on them. then just de-solder them from that strip and mount on your own board.

Indeed.

 

then just de-solder them

might not even need to do that - the strips can easily be cut, and have solderable connection points at frequent intervals ...

A "true engineer" is someone "who can make for £2 what any fool could make for 2p"!  Written by someone who has been there, done that.

Engineer on its own would make it cheaper, but what i observed in my experiences is this:

 

-costumer has something that costs 2€ to make

-engineer makes it for 10cents

-then costumer wants to add more features 

-and you end up with 3€ manufacturing cots, but it has a bunch more features then originaly planned.

The costumer always wants to dress things up. Maybe the engineer does too, but only on weekends.
