They are a supplier similar to mouser or digikey, although their website sucks for searching by types of product. They have a bunch of other stuff, but here are some popular bare emitters I have found. Thanks to Tom E and TexasAce for telling me about the sale.
XP-L High Density
6500k, V6 bin – $4.24/ea
6200k, V6 bin – $4.19/ea
5700k, V5 bin – $4.55/ea
5000k, V5 bin – $3.79/ea
4750k, V5 bin – $3.70/ea
4500k, V4 bin, 75cri – $2.95/ea

XP-G3

Thanks pd. It looks like they have free international shipping if you spend over $50.00.

If you find any other good emitters please post them. I looked through XP-L HD’s, Tom found the XP-G3’s. I didn’t see any good bins of XP-L HI or XHP35, most were back-ordered. I didn’t look for XM-L2 or other XHP’s

hmm I had actually forgotten about the XP-L2. It didn’t get much buzz here.

Wow, I must have done better then I thought on those Texas Avenger drivers, It seems I gave them the breath of life! Or artificial intelligence anyways lol. Silly

I kept meaning to post a thread on this but never got around to it. It is a great way to order some driver components without the silly digikey shipping costs.

I have a big shopping cart I have been putting together there, I keep waiting to actually place the order until I have everything but I keep finding more.

They also have some 3000K 80+ CRI XP-G3’s: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/xpgdwt-h1-0000-00he7/cree

I used 2x of these and 2x of the 5700k in an S41 and it gives an amazing tint and color rendition (well, until I dedomed one of the emitters by mistake).

Edited Facepalm

I haven’t figured how to read the XPG3 product codes yet. Do they have any high bin 3500-4000k?

Arrows search engine sucks, no argument there.

Here are all the XP-G3’s they have in stock: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/search?q=XPGDWT-&cat=LEDs%20and%20LED%...

The first set of digits is the XP-G3 model.

The second set of digits is the CRI, H = 80+, U = 90+

The 3rd to last digit is the bin, you can compare it to the datasheet to figure out which flux bin it is.

The lase 2 digits are the tint. E2 for example is something in the “2” range, 2a, 2b, 2c, 2d ect.

I ordered a bunch of these” Osram Duris E3s “:https://www.arrow.com/en/products/lcwjnsh.ec-btcp-5h7i-1/osram-opto-semi...

They are an inexpensive small 3 × 1.4mm SMT LED with no focusing lens. The ones I got are slightly cool in color 5000K but still have a CRI of 85, the light looks very crisp and clean. They are a low power LED like a 5mm but are fairly efficient. The only down side I have found with them is the packaging material has way to low of a melting point. It makes it difficult to hand solder them as the packaging quickly turns to a melted blob. Best luck has been with using solder paste and making sure the LED is anchored so that it does not attach it’s self to the soldering iron tip like small SMT components like to do.

I mainly got them for adding white back light to things and making replacement automotive interior light bulbs.

Hey TA if you are getting driver components, would you mind sharing your cart? I found the FETs I need and Attiny25’s but I’m having trouble with reverse polarity diodes? I prefer the SOD-323 package because that’s what I’ve put on my drivers.

I can probably handle resistors myself.

Which Tiny25’s are you getting. I was having trouble figuring out which ones would work as there are so many model numbers with no data that I could find explaining the difference.

For some reason it is not pulling up my past orders, although pretty sure I just copy/pasted the model number from digikey into arrow and it came up with the diode.

I see, so you got the low voltage 10mhz version?

I was curious if the 10mhz version would work with the existing firmware/fuses.

There was a debate about it in the 25/45/85 thread some months ago, and I don’t think any issues have been reported on any of them.

Richard sells the non-v version, and that’s working fine too.

I’m probably just get the cheapest

Thanks! I ordered a couple xpg, xpls and an xhp35. Fingers crossed. (shipping and billing address are different.lol)

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

XHP35 is actually a good idea, I could use a cheap one for torture testing. Gonna grab one of the 5 bin’s

Gonna see how it handles an FET driver with the max duty turning down a bit.

Yeah, a lot of the cheap ones are back ordered, although I did get some 85’s for pretty cheap on my last order.

Correct, power handling should be basically the same between them, just the lumens that should change if it is like the XP-L hi.

I got a 10% coupon for my first order. I’m still filling my cart as well. I really wish they had some good XHP35 HI’s, but oh well.

Yeah, I have looked through the list for those as well but they just don’t have them.

My biggest complaint with Arrow is all the limits on the good items to 1000 minium quantity. They then dump those into the same sections as the items you can buy 1 at a time. Annoying to think you found the perfect item only to realize that you need to buy 1000 of them.

Heck, I wish they had some XP-L HI’s.

Oh yeah, I decided on these tiny25’s, if you buy 10 the price drops to $1.14 and then the coupon code drops it down even more: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/attiny25-20sur/atmel

Here is my shopping cart at this point, I still need to go through all my driver components and see what I am short on. Think I am going to buy enough to build 25 or so TA drivers to test the waters.

Are you sure that 25 is the right package size? I think it’s the bigger one like the 85s

Good catch, well the cheapest option after that is $1.30 each when buying 10 of them. MTN sells them for .95 cents each. So it works out to basically the same price as ordering from MTN and paying shipping, except that you can then add on more stuff from MTN…..
