Cree reaches milestone with introduction of XLamp MK-R LEDs

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced XLamp MK-R LEDs. The new LEDs leverage the firm’s SC3 Technology next generation LED platform, based on advanced silicon carbide technology, to deliver up to 200 lumen-per-watt (at 1W, 25°C) LEDs.

“Cree’s relentless innovation continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with LED lighting,” says John Edmond, Cree co-founder & director of advanced optoelectronics. “The MK-R LED is another game changer for the industry. An LED with this level of performance can accelerate the development of high output lighting applications and could enable applications we haven’t even thought of yet.”

MK-R LEDs make the next generation of 100+ lumens-per-watt systems possible for high lumen applications, including outdoor and indoor directional applications, such as halogen replacement lamps. Available in EasyWhite color temperatures, MK-R LEDs provide the industry’s best color consistency for designs that use only one LED, says the firm. For systems that use multiple LEDs, MK-R enables manufacturers to use fewer LEDs while still maintaining light output and quality.

The MK-R LED features a 7mm x 7mm footprint with a 6mm optical source and delivers up to 1600 lumens at 15W, 85°C. Characterized at 85°C, the MK-R component is available in 2700-7000K color temperatures and offers minimum color rendering index (CRI) options of 70, 80 and 90 (at selected color temperatures).

Cree XLamp MK-R LED samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
