No, as the NeoPixel requires high current which cannot be supplied by the Arduino board. For power supply specifications of NeoPixel see https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-neopixel-uberguide/powering-neopixels. For more information on how to connect the NeoPixel to an Arduino board see the Hardware Setup section in https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/mlc-downloads/downloads/submissions/64467/versions/2/previews/html/NeoPixelExample_Thermometer.html
