These tiny 5050 (5mm x 5mm) SMD LEDs are fairly easy to solder and they're the most compact way possible to integrate multiple bright LEDs to a design.
These 5050-sized LEDs come with an embedded microcontroller inside the LED. You can set the brightness of each R/G/B/W. Each LED acts like a shift register, reading incoming data on the input pins, and then shifting the previous data out on the output pin. By sending a long string of data, you can control an infinite number of LEDs, just tack on more or disconnect unwanted LEDs at the end. The PWM is built into each LED-chip so once you set the brightness you can stop talking to the strip and it will continue to PWM all the LEDs for you.
