SK6812/WS281x-Based Addressable RGB LEDs

The SK6812 LED driver is a newer alternative to the WS2812B LED driver. The two are very similar, sharing the same interface and color order, so the SK6812 can generally be used as a drop-in replacement for the WS2812B or chained together with the WS2812B. The main difference between these drivers is that the SK6812 has voltage-independent color and brightness over a wide voltage range, which means that the colors of the LEDs should not be affected by a drop in the supply voltage as much as they are on the WS281x.
