APA107 has 4 pins, APA102 has 6.
APA107 only has a data-pin, APA102 has pins for data and clock.

Its not a drop-in replacement.

Had you seen the APA107 before? if not, please shut up.....
check the picture, open your fu...cking big eyes, it is 4pins?

if you are not blind, I think you can see 6pins....

selling...you looks very scared

No. This is a jpeg image - not a datasheet.
And no. Yesitsme did not made the datasheet. Like you he randomly 
selected a document from the internet. Actually the vendor wrote two 
datasheet documents with the same name "SPC/APA107".

 1) https://datasheetspdf.com/pdf-file/1273359/NEWSTAR/APA107/1
 2) https://cdn.hackaday.io/files/21293910999712/APA10...

The later one with revision number 01 seems to be the current valid one, 
as it is the version available on the homepage of newstar.

It seems to be what newstar has in mind when writing:
"APA107 will be upgraded again, the PWM can be 26-28kHz, faster and 
cheaper than APA102."
