Mouser is now stocking the new XLamp XP-G3 LEDs from Cree. This third generation of the XLamp XPG platform incorporates elements of the company’s SC5 Technology Platform for high reliability at high operating temperatures. The LEDs deliver 31 percent more lumens and 8 percent higher lumens-per-watt than the previous generation. Optimised for directional, high-lumen applications, from indoor and outdoor to portable and lamp retrofits, the LEDs deliver the benefits of the XP-G platform. It is a compact, 3.45mm × 3.45mm package and established ecosystem that enabling designers to simplify the design process and shorten time to market.
The LEDs deliver over 205 lumens-per-watt at 350mA and up to 863lm at 2A. The high-density LEDs are available in 3 and 5-step ANSI white colour temperatures from 3,000K to 6,000K, and offer standard Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 70 or 80. They offer a maximum driver current of 2,000mA with low thermal resistance of 3C per Watt, and offer a wide viewing angle of 125 degrees.
The new RoHS and REACH-compliant LEDs are characterised and binned at 85C and meet the higher efficacy and lumen maintenance requirements of DLC classification. Based on the LM-80 standard, XP-G3 LEDs provide beyond 50,000 hours of L90 light levels, even at an extreme 105C, 1500mA test condition.
