Cree Reveals New Royal Blue LED And Patent Licensing Program
The firm has optimised the XLamp LED system design to lower system costs. Cree is also offering lighting-fixture companies access to its remote-phosphor patents to drive the LED lighting revolution forward.
Cree, an innovator in LED lighting, has announced the commercial availability of a new XLamp XT-E Royal Blue LED.
The module is optimised for use in remote-phosphor lighting and other applications with similar requirements.

Cree says its new XLamp XT-E LED delivers the industry’s tightest wavelength bins combined with category-leading brightness to simplify remote-phosphor designs and lower system costs.
In addition, Cree is announcing a remote-phosphor-component patent licensing program that provides access to Cree’s pioneering remote-phosphor patents. The program is designed to drive the LED lighting revolution by enabling lighting-fixture companies to develop and introduce their own high-quality LED system products using LEDs such as the XLamp XT-E Royal Blue.
With a license under the new program, lighting OEMs can gain access to a number of fundamental Cree patents required to manufacture and use the combination of a remote-phosphor optical element with blue LEDs in LED lighting applications.
“Customers using remote-phosphor designs for their lighting products need both high output and consistent color," said Mike Watson, Cree senior director of marketing, LED components. “The new Cree XLamp XT-E Royal Blue LED outperforms the competition in both elements enabling our customers to design high-performance and low-cost systems."
Built using Cree’s Direct Attach LED technology that delivers higher flux, lower forward voltage and lower thermal resistance than other technologies, the XLamp XT-E Royal Blue LED delivers up to 525 mW at 350 mA and 85°C. The new XT-E Royal Blue LED is also available in 2.5-nm wavelength bins to allow customers to achieve desired colour consistency.
XLamp XT-E Royal Blue LEDs are available now with standard lead times.
