Cree broadens XLamp LED portfolio with lower-priced XR-C

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA is extending its XLamp high-power LED family to offer a full range of LED performance options for portable and general illumination applications. Available in production quantities, the XLamp XR-C white LED delivers luminous flux at 350mA of up to 74 lumens (60 lumens per Watt), and typically 60 lumens.

The LED shares the same form factor as Cree’s flagship XR-E LED, allowing re-use of design elements. It also features the same durability and surface-mount characteristics as other XLamp LEDs and provides an alternative for applications that do not require the highest brightness (compared to the XR-E’s luminous flux at 350mA of typically 80 lumens).

“Cree recognizes the market need for a high-performance, lower-priced power LED,” says Norbert Hiller, VP and general manager for XLamp LEDs.
