Adafruit Dot Star LED Bar Display

DotStar LEDs are digitally controllable LEDs that have two data wires and higher refresh rates than NeoPixels. You can control them with any microcontroller since the timing on the data lines aren't particular, and you can use an SPI peripheral to send data pretty fast. DotStars come in the classic 5050 (5mm x 5mm) size as well as the 2020 (2mm x 2mm) that are used here.  So what we have here is a special rigid PCB with 128 of the tiny 2mm x 2mm LEDs on, spaced as close as possible. Also, instead of a plain FR4 PCB it has an aluminum backing for extra strength and heat dissipation. Note that the PCB is rigid but requires support so it doesn't flex and crack. It's not intended to be bent or curved at all, and if you do so you may crack the copper traces.
