The XLamp XD16 Extreme Density LEDs from Cree are in stock at Mouser Electronics. Based on Cree’s NX Technology Platform, the XD16 LEDs deliver up to 5½ 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-watt, the LEDs enable improved output and efficacy in lighting applications such as directional lighting, low-bay and high-bay applications, colour tuning, and industrial lighting.
The LEDs provide what is claimed to be the industry’s highest lumen density for commercial lighting-class LEDs (284 lumens per square millimeter (lm/mm2)).
They draw a maximum drive current of 2A with a forward voltage of 2.73V, and offer maximum power of 6W and maximum output of 726 lumens.
Housed in a space-saving 1.6mm × 1.6mm ceramic-based package, the LEDs offer low thermal resistance of 6 degrees Celsius per Watt, low optical cross-talk, and a wide viewing angle of 135 degrees.
The LEDs are available from Mouser Electronics in ANSI White and Cree's 3-step and 5-step EasyWhite correlated colour temperatures (CCTs) ranging from 2700K to 6000K 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 Celsius and 85 percent relative humidity, and are UL-recognised and RoHS and REACH compliant.
