Cree Raises The Bar With 200 Lumen SiC Based LED

The firm's XLamp MK-R LEDs grown on silicon carbide deliver record-breaking efficacy and next-generation price-performance for LED arrays
Two years after breaking the 200 lumens-per-watt (LPW) R&D efficacy barrier, Cree says it has delivered another industry first with the introduction of the Cree XLamp MK-R LEDs.

The new MK-R LEDs leverage the SC³ Technology next generation LED platform to deliver up to 200 lumen-per-watt (at 1W, 25°C) LEDs.

The new MK-R LEDs make the next generation of 100+ lumens-per-watt system possible for high lumen applications, including outdoor and indoor directional applications, such as halogen replacement lamps.

MK-R LEDs are available in EasyWhite colour temperatures, providing one of the LED industry’s best colour consistencies for designs that use only one LED. For systems that use multiple LEDs, MK-R enables manufacturers to use fewer LEDs while still maintaining light output and quality, which translates to lower system cost.

“It’s amazing that Cree is able to achieve a 200 lumens-per-watt LED so quickly," says Nicola Vendrame, CEO, Linea Light group. “The high efficacy of the MK-R LED means that we can drive the LED harder for more light output without creating heat issues. In addition, the MK-R LED has the right combination of size, colour consistency and optical control to enable the next generation of performance in our indoor directional luminaires."

“Cree’s relentless innovation continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with LED lighting," adds John Edmond, Cree co-founder and director of advanced optoelectronics. “The MK-R LED is another game changer for the industry. An LED with this level of performance can accelerate the development of high output lighting applications and could enable applications we haven’t even thought of yet."

The MK-R LED has a 7mm x 7mm footprint with a 6mm optical source and delivers up to 1600 lumens at 15W, 85°C. Characterised at 85°C, the MK-R component is available in 2700K to 7000K colour temperatures and offers minimum CRI options of 70, 80 and 90 (at selected colour temperatures).

The MK-R LED is the ninth product built on Cree’s SC³ Technology platform.

The innovative platform leverages Cree’s advanced SiC technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor and boasts a new package design to deliver the most advanced LED components in the industry.

Cree XLamp MK-R LED samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.



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.
