Cree releases brightest highest-efficacy colour LEDs

The silicon carbide (SiC) based LEDs are suited to architectural, vehicle and display lighting and come in a range of colours
Cree has announced the commercial availability of its XLamp XP-E2 colour LEDs.


The new XP-E2 colour LEDs deliver up to 88 percent higher maximum light output compared to alternative high-power colour LEDs.

This enables lighting manufacturers to more cost-effectively address a wide spectrum of applications, such as architectural, vehicle and display lighting.

Built on Cree’s SC³ technology next-generation LED platform, the new XP-E2 colour LEDs deliver higher lumens-per-watt and lumens-per-dollar compared to the original XP-E colour LEDs to lower system costs for existing XP-E colour designs.

The latest XP-E2 colour LEDs leverage the same XP footprint (3.45 mm x 3.45 mm) and are optically compatible with the original XP-E LED. This provides drop-in-ready performance enhancements to shorten design cycle and improve customer time to market.

“We are excited that Cree is offering higher-performance color LEDs in the XP footprint,” says Greg Campbell, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Lumenpulse. “The brighter XP-E2 colour LEDs enable Lumenpulse to continue to provide innovative, high-performance LED lighting systems.”

XLamp XP-E2 colour LEDs deliver up to 1409 mW for royal blue, 109 lumens for blue, 253 lumens for green, 203 lumens for amber, 193 lumens for red-orange and 155 lumens for red, all at maximum drive currents in the 3.45 mm x 3.45 mm footprint.

Samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Cree XLamp XP-E2 colour LEDs are available in red, red-orange, amber, green, blue and royal blue.
