Cree expands XLamp XR-C LED family to full range of colors

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has expanded its family of XLamp XR-C high-power LEDs to include the full range of colors.

Standard flux order codes at 350mA are available up to: 350mW in royal blue, 23.5lm in blue, 67.2lm in green, and 51.7lm in amber, red-orange and red.

The firm says that its XR-C color LEDs feature the same isolated thermal path, low thermal resistance and high reliability as the XR-C family’s white LEDs, as well as offering a smooth upgrade path for customers looking to use the same footprint as the firm’s XR LED products.

Paul Thieken, director of marketing for lighting LEDs, says that Cree is extending its XLamp LED portfolio with new, higher-performance, lower-price options in the XR family form factor. “Cree enables design flexibility for color LED applications with consistent drive currents and footprints throughout the XLamp XR-C and XR-E LED families,” he adds.
