Cree launches C1010 three-in-one RGB surface-mount LED for HD indoor video screens

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the C1010 LED, a three-in-one RGB surface-mount device (SMD) LED that, it is said, enables high-definition LED screen manufacturers to create video displays that are sharper and more dynamic than previously possible. Product samples are available now with standard lead times.

Featuring what is claimed to be the best far-field pattern matching and the lowest power consumption in its class, the new LED delivers 40% better contrast ratio and a longer lifetime than competing LEDs, it is reckoned. The C1010 is also said to be the only high-density display LED with zero cross-talk between pixels, eliminating the need for louvers that add cost and weight to displays.

"The robust C1010 opens up new applications for high-density displays and continues Cree's record of technology breakthroughs for display LEDs, including the first tilted-angle radiation pattern LEDs and the first waterproof SMD LEDs," says Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs.

The C1010 has been proven to deliver more than double the lifetime of competing LEDs under accelerated high-temperature and high-humidity testing conditions, Cree claims. It also delivers a luminous intensity of up to 140mcd at a drive current of 5mA in a compact ultra-black 1.0mm x 1.0mm package to maximize contrast under all viewing conditions.

"Cree's new C1010 LED will revolutionize the high-density LED display market," comments Aaron Wu, deputy general manager of LED display maker Shenzhen AOTO Electronics Co Ltd. "The C1010 creates a noticeably higher-quality image than any other small-pitch LEDs that we have evaluated and is backed by the best reliability data in the industry," he adds.
