Cree Extends Street Lighting Portfolio

XSP HO series delivers 25 percent performance increase

Cree has extended its street lighting portfolio, delivering more performance and efficiency with the XSP HO Series.

Using innovations from the existing Cree XSP Series LED street light platform, the new XSP HO Series features an increased level of lumens and up to 25 percent more LPW over the standard XSP Series. Now available in new packages up to 18,523 lumens and 116 LPW, the new XSP HO Series is suitable for any roadway, enabling better light for new applications ranging from collector roads to highways.

"Now more than ever before, Cree's street light portfolio serves as the better choice for traditional street and area lighting with improved performance that enables quicker payback and better light experiences," said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting.

The XSP HO Series is designed to meet a wide array of challenging roadway and street lighting applications that range from low to high pedestrian conflict areas.

Cree's XSP Series platform recently helped the town of Somerville, TN reduce its average wattage per light from 400 to 100.

"The cost of electricity for the street lights has been reduced by 69 percent and 75 percent across the board on the whole project," said Bob Turner, Somerville city administrator. "We originally budgeted more than $100,000 a year for our lights, and now we budget $25,000. That's $75,000 tax dollars saved in the general fund."

The luminaires are said to be easy to design, install and operate, as well as compatible with all standard ANSI photocells. The series provides long L70 lifetime of more than 100,000 hours and is smart-city ready, enabled by a standard NEMA 7-pin socket.  Available in colour temperatures up to 5700K and a Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of more than 70, the street lights are field adjustable and backed by Cree's 10-year limited warranty. 

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.
