I am trying to figure out the best way to wire a set of 32 (3-watt) LEDs. I had in mind either doing a parallel set of 16 LEDs or just going with a single string of 32. The LEDs I have in mind are these - VF= 3.2V~3.8V, IF = 700 mA . The LED driver I have in mind is this one - the LPC-100-700 specifically (output = 700 mA, 72~143VDC, 100W). Is this driver sufficient (or too much)? Is there a setup I could use which includes dimming as well? How much heat can I expect to generate and will dimming be of any help or should I consider a using a strobe setup instead (or combination of both)? This project is being setup as a demo 3D project with plastic mock heat sinks. Either way I will be monitoring the temp build up. The final project could include proper heat dissipation if that becomes an issue.
