Cree Introduces New High Intensity LED
Single-die LED delivers over 100,000 candela at 10W
Cree has announced the new XLamp XP-L High Intensity LED, which it claims is the first single-die LED to deliver over 100,000 candela with a 50mm diameter optic at 10W.
Built on Cree's SC5 Technology Platform, the XP-L High Intensity LED is said to deliver more than double the candelas of the industry's previous highest performing single-die XP-L LED through the same optic.
Leveraging the existing 3.45 mm x 3.45 mm XP-L package, the new high intensity LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to quickly boost performance, reduce size and lower system cost for applications such as track, outdoor and stadium lighting.
The XLamp XP-L High Intensity LED delivers candela at 185 lumens per watt at one watt. The new High Intensity LED offers a drop-in ready upgrade for XP-based luminaire designs, enabling manufacturers to achieve higher luminous intensity with minimal redesign to accelerate time to market.
"The XP-L High Intensity LED looks like a great option for some of our upcoming lights," said Jon Quenzer, electrical engineer, Trek. "The XP-L High Intensity LED allows us to boost the efficacy and intensity of our XP-G2 LED based designs without changing optics or drivers."
Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs said: "The XP-L High Intensity LED will allow lighting designers to fundamentally change the way they think about using LEDs in high intensity lighting and enable lighting manufacturers to reach performance levels previously not possible."
Characterised and binned at 1050mA, 85degC, the XP-L High Intensity LED is available in up to 90 CRI and colour temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 8300 K. 6,000 hours of LM-80 long-term testing data is available for the XP-L High Intensity LED for lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification.
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
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.
