WorldSemi WS2801, WS2811, WS2812 LED Drivers

These really cool low-cost RGB LED "pixel" drivers just came to my attention.

The WS2801 is an externally-clocked high speed RGB constant-current LED driver ideal for outdoor signage.
The WS2811 is self-clocked for lower cost low speed applications.
The WS2812 includes a WS2811 driver with three LEDs mounted.
