Diviner IC options ??

From your post you know of 2801 vs 2811; are you asking about other individual control "concepts" implemented in a string of LEDs ?

Adafruit sells some strings based on the LDP8803/8806 IC and there's some Arduino libraries for it.

There's also a TM1803 IC that I know nothing about. Looks like a W2811 clone ?

Adafruit also has some strips using the HL1606 IC

My fault. I meant driver!
I am just looking for other ICs that are beuing used to make the "Christmas lights" style individuality addressable LEDs strings.
