Cree boosts performance of XLamp XP LEDs

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has announced the commercial availability of higher-flux bins for warm- and cool-white XLamp XP-E LEDs and higher maximum forward currents for both XLamp XP-E and XP-G LEDs.

XLamp XP-E cool white LEDs are now available in the R3 bin, 122-130 lumens at 350mA, delivering up to 116 lumens per watt. Warm-white (3000K) XP-E LEDs are available in the Q3 bin, 94-100 lumens at 350mA. The maximum forward current for all XLamp XP-E white LEDs is now increased to 1A.

For XLamp XP-G LEDs, the maximum forward current has been raised to 1.5A, delivering up to 493 lumens at 92 lumens per watt.

“While others continue to offer 100-lumen LEDs as their highest performance level, Cree is leading the industry in lighting-class brightness and efficacy,” says Paul Thieken, Cree’s director of marketing, LED components. “Our lighting-class LEDs are designed to deliver the performance our customers need: hundreds of lumens, high efficacy, good quality of light and long lifetimes.”
