Cree claims smallest lighting-class LEDs

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced its lighting-class XLamp XP-E and XP-C LEDs. According to the firm, the new products have the smallest footprint in the industry for lighting-class LEDs, measuring 3.45 mm square by 2 mm high (80% smaller than Cree’s XR-E and XR-C LEDs). Applications include: backlighting, signage, outdoor, indoor and portable lighting.

Available bins for XLamp XP-E LEDs include minimums of 100 lumens at 350 mA in cool white (5000 K - 10000 K) and 80.6 lumens at 350 mA in warm white (2600 K - 3700 K).

”We recognized an unmet need for lighting-class performance in a small-footprint, low-profile LED package. These products, based on an innovative new technology platform, address this need,” said Paul Thieken, Cree’s marketing director for LED components. “This new platform, in concert with the existing XLamp products and the recently demonstrated XLamp MC-E LED, give LED lighting designers enhanced flexibility and performance to further accelerate the LED lighting revolution.”
