Cree launches XLamp MHD family, delivering chip-on-board performance in surface-mount LED

Building on its XLamp MH family of LEDs, Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced the XLamp MHD-E and MHD-G high-power LEDs, which combine the high lumen density and reliability of a ceramic chip-on-board LED with the design and manufacturing advantages of a surface-mount package.

Utilizing elements of the Cree SC5 Technology Platform, the ceramic XLamp MHD LEDs simplify development, increase design flexibility and improve manufacturing efficiency compared to mid-power LEDs, the firm says. The MH family enables new designs and significantly lower system costs, Cree claims.

“The high lumen output and high reliability of Cree’s new MHD-G LED allows us to develop a new downlight that outperforms other downlights in the market,” comments Baly Luo, general manager of Aeon Lighting Technology. “ALT’s compact size 4-inch downlight that is built with the MHD-G LED generates over 1800 lumens at 3000K while other downlights can only produce 800 to 1000 lumens,” he adds.

Featuring Cree EasyWhite technology in a 7mm x 7mm package, XLamp MH LEDs enable a smaller board size, tighter beam angle and a more traditional appearance than mid-power LEDs, Cree says. Delivering more than 1800 lumens at 14W and 2500 lumens at 19W respectively, the MHD-E and MHD-G LEDs are suitable for semi-directional, high-lumen applications such as downlight, high-bay and outdoor area applications.

“With the MHD LEDs, we’re offering chip-on-board performance to lighting manufacturers that prefer surface-mount technology, making it easier for them to achieve lower system cost than with the same commoditized mid-power LEDs that everyone is using,” says Paul Thieken, Cree’s director of marketing, LED Components.

The MHD-E and MHD-G LEDs are available in 2700-6500K color temperatures with high-CRI (color rendering index) and multiple voltage options. Product samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
