CREE Boosts Output of XLAMP XP LEDs by 9%

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that, by leveraging key elements of its SC5 Technology Platform, its high-power XLamp XP-L and XP-G2 LEDs now provide up to 9% more lumens and lumens-per-watt (LPW) than previously available. The firm says that the enhancements allow lighting manufacturers to quickly increase performance for existing designs without any additional investment or re-qualification.

"We originally selected the XP-G2 LED for our street-lighting products because of its high performance and proven reliability," comments Dante Cariboni, CEO of Italy-based firm 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," he adds.

"The higher-performing XPL and XPG2 LEDs are examples of how Cree delivers innovation that our customers can use immediately to improve existing designs," says Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs.

Sharing the same 3.45mm x 3.45mm footprint as the industry-standard XP platform, the XP-L LED delivers up to 1150 lumens, while the XP-G2 LED delivers up to 586 lumens, both at 85°C. Reflecting the 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 105°C, delivering reported L90 lifetimes of greater than 36,000 hrs (less than 10% light loss after four years).

Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
