Cree Reveals First No-compromise, Ceramic, Mid-power LEDs

The firm's latest III-nitride XH LEDs are claimed to deliver breakthrough reliability and performance
Cree has released the new XLamp XH Series of LEDs.

The firm says this is the first family of mid-power, ceramic LEDs that offer no-compromise performance and reliability.

Unlike today’s common mid-power plastic packages, XLamp XH-G and XH-B LEDs enable lighting manufacturers to create a new generation of more energy-efficient, longer-life LED

lighting solutions without sacrificing cost or performance.

XH LEDs are optimised for fluorescent-replacement-lighting applications, such as troffers and panel lights, where high efficacy, lifetime and smooth appearance are critical.

The XH-G LED delivers leading efficacy levels of up to 170 lumens-per-watt at 65 mA, 5000 K, 80 CRI and 25°C.

What's more, the ceramic-based XH LEDs are designed to deliver the long L70 lifetimes at high temperature and high current operation of Cree’s other high-power LEDs, such as XP and XT LEDs.

In comparison, plastic LEDs are known for very short L70 lifetimes at high-temperature and high-current operation. The XH LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to offer products that meet the reliability expectations of LED technology.

“We're excited that Cree is offering high-quality, ceramic-based, mid-power LEDs designed for real-world lighting applications," says Roger Suen, supply chain management director, Light Engine. “The XH LED family gives us confidence in providing products that deliver stable lumen maintenance and good color consistency that cannot be duplicated by plastic packages."

“The use of plastic packages for lighting solutions places a high degree of risk for end-customers and the industry in general," adds Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “The XH LEDs provide peace-of-mind to lighting manufacturers while enabling them to better differentiate their products in the marketplace."

Both XH-G and XH-B LEDs share a common 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm footprint package with a 13 percent wider beam angle than most plastic mid-power LEDs. Cree XLamp XH LEDs are offered in 2700K to 7000K colour temperatures with high-CRI options available.

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.
