So am I working on a LED project starting with an MR16. I will use this thread to keep track of my plan and ask questions and maybe get some answers.
High Level details
LED Driver; National Semiconductor LM3424
LED; (7x) CREE XLamp XP-G
Optics; KHATOD PL121406_CRE
Case/Heatsink I will work on after I get the Circuits and PCB designed (1st pass).
I have the circuit designed but need to go through it again. Trying to figure out which Schematic/PCB program to use. Thinking about Eagle, need to make my own IC template though don't see one for what I need (TSSOP-20).
What is a good place to send out PCB's to for these LED projects?
The optics don't list XP-G but the package dimensions given in the datasheet are the same as the XP-E/XP-C so I don't see why it wouldn't work. Fair assumption?
Also thinking I should figure out a way to pulse/strobe the light if it goes into current limiting mode (due to temperature) as a safety feature so there is some warning before it shuts off.
