Cree Boosts Performance of XLamp XP LEDs
Cree, Inc continues to innovate with its high-power XLamp XP-L and XP-G2 LEDs. By leveraging key elements of Cree's SC5 Technology Platform, the XP-L and XP-G2 LEDs now provide up to nine percent more lumens and lumens-per-watt (LPW) than previously available. These enhancements allow lighting manufacturers to quickly increase performance for existing designs without any additional investment or requalification.
"We originally selected the XP-G2 LED for our street lighting products because of its high performance and proven reliability," said Dante Cariboni, CEO, Fivep SpA
(Cariboni Group). "The brighter and more efficient XP-G2 LED announced today will allow us to improve the performance of our products without changing the design."
"Cree has a history of introducing significant LED advancements, like our Extreme High Power LEDs, that enable our customers to achieve industry-leading lighting system performance and cost," said Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. "We also understand that our customers have invested significant time and resources in existing designs that incorporate Cree XLamp LEDs. The higher performing XPL and XPG2 LEDs are examples of how Cree delivers innovation that our customers can use immediately to improve existing designs."
Cree pioneered the industry-standard form factor with the XP platform and has continued to deliver breakthrough performance to the platform. Sharing the same 3.45mm x 3.45mm footprint, the XLamp XP-L LED delivers up to 1150 lumens, while the XLamp XP-G2 LED delivers up to 586 lumens, both at 85Â°C. Reflecting the excellent long-term reliability of the XLamp XP platform, both the XP-L and XP-G2 LEDs have 10,000 hours of LM-80 data available at 105Â°C, delivering reported L90 lifetimes of greater than 36,000 hrs, which is less than 10 percent light loss after four years.
