Mouser offers Cree’s XLamp XD16 LEDs for high lumen density
Mouser Electronics now stocks the XLamp XD16 extreme density LEDs from Cree. Based on Cree’s NX technology platform, the XD16 LEDs deliver up to five and a half times higher lumen density than Cree’s previous generation of high-power LEDs. Specifically designed for applications requiring high light output and high lumens per W, the XD16 LEDs enable improved output and efficacy in lighting applications such as directional lighting, low-bay and high-bay applications, colour tuning, and industrial lighting.
Cree’s XLamp XD16 extreme density LEDs are claimed to provide the industry’s highest lumen density for commercial lighting-class LEDs (284 lumens per mm2). The LEDs draw a maximum drive current of 2.0A with a forward voltage of 2.73V, and offer maximum power of 6.0W and maximum output of 726 lumens. Housed in a space-saving 1.6 x 1.6mm ceramic-based package, the XD16 LEDs offer low thermal resistance of six degrees C per W, low optical cross-talk, and a wide viewing angle of 135 degrees.
The XD16 LEDs are available from Mouser Electronics in ANSI White and Cree’s three-step and five-step EasyWhite correlated colour temperatures (CCTs) ranging from 2700K to 6000 with colour rendering index (CRI) ratings options of 70, 80 and 90. The durable LEDs have an unlimited floor life at less than 30 degrees C and 85 per cent relative humidity. They are UL-recognised and RoHS- and REACH- compliant.
