Cree Makes Next Gen High-Power LEDs

New XP-L2 LEDs claimed to offer double the lumen density of competing products

Cree has introduced the XLamp XP-L2 LED, delivering up to seven percent more lumens and 15 percent higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the industry-leading XP-L LED.

Using elements of Cree's breakthrough SC5 Technology Platform, the high-power XP-L2 LED improves the lumen density, voltage characteristics and reliability of the XP-L LED in the proven XP package. The new XP-L2 LED provides an easy drop-in upgrade to achieve higher system LPW for lighting manufacturers with existing XP-L designs, eliminating redesign costs. It also enables reduced size and cost for new designs.

"We like the XP-L2 LED because it is Cree innovation that we can leverage immediately," said Nathan Heiking, product manager, Kenall Lighting. "The new XP-L2 LED improves upon the XP-L LED in the same footprint, allowing us to quickly achieve higher system efficacy in our existing XP designs without the burden of increased development time and cost."  

The XLamp XP-L2 LED raises efficacy of warm white (3000K, 80 CRI) at 85degC up to 171 LPW. In addition, the XP-L2 LED is now available in EasyWhite 2-, 3- and 5-step colour temperatures from 2700K to 6500K to enable luminaire color consistency. The XP-L2 LED has LM-80 data available immediately, enabling luminaires using XP-L2 to be qualified for ENERGY STAR and DesignLights Consortium.

"Cree created a breakthrough performance class of high-power LEDs with the XLamp XP-L LED, and the new XP-L2 continues to strengthen our performance advantage," said Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. 

"The new XP-L2 LED delivers twice the lumen output of other similar-size high-power LEDs, enabling lighting manufacturers to improve the performance of their lighting designs and reduce the size and cost of new designs for applications, such as industrial and stadium lighting."



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
