The addressable RGB LED I have is WS2812B. I plan on controlling the LEDs via an Arduino nano. I have a total of 188 LEDs to supply power to.

Would I require anything between the addressable RGB LED strip and the 12v power supply?

Would I require a 1000uF capacitor?

A suitable 5V regulator (assuming 5V LED strip)

Would I require a 1000uF capacitor?

For what? A suitable 5V regulator won't need one. An unsuitable one would be improved by it, but still be unsuitable.

  • Regarding the 1000uF capacitor - I was just guessing from looking a diagrams which included what I would be using. – Jordan H. Nov 28 '18 at 19:14
