Cree High Density LEDs Double Lumen Output

First to deliver deliver 6,000 lumens in 9mm light emitting surface

Cree has introduced the XLamp CXB1310 and CXB1520 High Density LED arrays, which are said to deliver the highest lumen density at 6mm and 9mm - the most lumens in the industry for their LES [light emitting surface] sizes.

Incorporating elements of Cree's SC5 Technology Platform, the new LEDs will enable new and differentiated LED lighting form factors for applications like track lights, lamps and downlights, according to Cree.

For example, the CXB1520 LED packs the lumen output of seven 60W replacement lamps into an area much smaller than a dime, allowing lighting manufacturers to put more light where it is intended at a lower system cost.

"The CXB1310 High Density LED array delivers an impressive amount of light in a small package," said Massimo Parravicini, R&D director of Reggiani Illuminazione. "The high lumen density of the CXB1310 LED will allow us to offer LED designs with performance and form factors previously impossible."

The high performance of the CXA2 High Density LED arrays allow lighting manufacturers to reduce thermal, mechanical and optical costs at the system level. For example, when combined with a 74mm diameter optic, the 3000K, 80 CRI CXB1520 High Density LED array delivers over 50,000 candela in a 10-degree beam while drawing only 40 watts.

This high lumen density allows lighting manufacturers to deliver the performance of a 70W ceramic metal halide (CMH) PAR38 lamp through a much smaller PAR20-size optic using 43 percent less power. The CXB1310 High Density LED array delivers up to 3,200 lumens in a 6mm LES, allowing similar reductions in size and power from traditional light sources.

"The CXB1520 High Density LED allows us to deliver downlights that provide up to 2700 lumens with just 28 watts in a very small 4 inch trim platform. What was previously only possible in much larger platforms with much higher wattage requirements is now made possible in our VF Series Specification Grade Luminaire Downlight product line using Cree's CXB1520 High Density LEDs," said Justin Weaver, VP engineering, LF Illumination.

"The very high efficacy of the CXB1520 High Density LED also allows us to move many of our products that at one time were only possible with active cooling solutions to passive solutions, simplifying our design and lowering our system costs significantly."

Cree XLamp CXA2 High Density LED arrays are characterized and binned at 85degC, available in 2-, 3- and 5-step EasyWhite colour temperatures (2700K - 6500K), and CRI options of 70, 80 and 90. The CXB1310 and CXB1520 LEDs have LM-80 long-term test data available immediately, delivering reported L90 lifetime projections of at least 36,300 hours at 85degC and 105degC.



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.
