Cree's new high-intensity class of LEDs more than doubles performance

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA claims that its new XLamp XP-L High Intensity LED is the first single-die LED to deliver more than 100,000 candela with a 50mm diameter optic at 10W (more than double the candelas of the industry's previous highest-performing single-die LED - the XP-L - through the same optic).

Based on Cree's SC5 Technology Platform and leveraging the existing 3.45mm x 3.45mm XP-L package, the new high-intensity LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to quickly boost performance, reduce size and lower system cost for applications such as track, outdoor and stadium lighting, says Cree.

Featuring Cree's new primary optic design that reduces optical source size by more than 50%, the XP-L High Intensity LED delivers unprecedented candela at 185 lumens per watt at one watt. The new High Intensity LED offers a drop-in-ready upgrade for XP-based luminaire designs, enabling manufacturers to achieve higher luminous intensity with minimal redesign to speed time to market.

"The XP-L High Intensity LED allows us to boost the efficacy and intensity of our XP-G2 LED based designs without changing optics or drivers," comments Jon Quenzer, electrical engineer at Trek.  

The new LED delivers both lumens and unprecedented intensity in a small form factor, claims Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs. "The XP-L High Intensity LED will allow lighting designers to fundamentally change the way they think about using LEDs in high-intensity lighting and enable lighting manufacturers to reach performance levels previously not possible," he adds. 

Characterized and binned at 1050mA (85°C), the XP-L High Intensity LED is available with a color rendering index (CRI) of up to 90 and color temperatures ranging from 2700K to 8300K. For lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification, 6000 hours of LM-80 long-term testing data is available.

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