Cree’s XLamp XD16 LEDs, Now at Mouser, Deliver 5x Higher Lumen Density with Low Cross Talk


Mouser Electronics,  is now stocking XLamp XD16 Extreme Density LEDs from Cree. 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 high-performance XD16 LEDs enable improved output and efficacy in lighting applications such as directional lighting, low-bay and high-bay applications, color tuning, and industrial lighting.

Cree’s XLamp XD16 Extreme Density LEDs, available from Mouser Electronics, provide the industry’s highest lumen density for commercial lighting-class LEDs (284 lumens per square millimeter (lm/mm2)). The LEDs draw a maximum drive current of 2 A with a forward voltage of 2.73 V, and offer maximum power of 6 W and maximum output of 726 lumens. Housed in a space-saving 1.6 mm × 1.6 mm ceramic-based package, the XD16 LEDs offer low thermal resistance of 6 degrees Celsius per Watt, 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 3-step and 5-step EasyWhite correlated color temperatures (CCTs) ranging from 2700K to 6000K with color 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-recognized and RoHS and REACH compliant.
