21 February 2010
Cree, Inc announces the commercial availability of higher-flux bins for warm- and cool-white XLamp XP-E LEDs and higher maximum forward currents for both XLamp XP-E and XP-G LEDs. XLamp XP-E cool white LEDs are now available in the R3 bin, 122-130 lumens at 350 mA, delivering up to 116 lumens per watt. Warm-white (3000 K) XP-E LEDs are available in the Q3 bin, 94-100 lumens at 350 mA. The maximum forward current for all XLamp XP-E white LEDs is now increased to 1 A, enabling more design flexibility and higher light-output applications.
In addition, the maximum forward current for XLamp XP-G LEDs is now raised to 1.5 A, delivering up to 493 lumens at 92 lumens per watt. XP-G LEDs deliver high efficacy at high currents, which can allow new high-performance LED applications where more light in less space is necessary.
“While others continue to offer 100-lumen LEDs as their highest performance level, Cree is leading the industry in lighting-class brightness and efficacy,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “Our lighting-class LEDs are designed to deliver the performance our customers need: hundreds of lumens, high efficacy, good quality of light and long lifetimes.”
