Cree Opens Engineering Center in Shenzhen, China, to Aid High-Quality LED Luminaire Design

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, announces the opening of the Cree Shenzhen Engineering Center in Shenzhen, China. This technical education center is dedicated to training lighting product designers and manufacturers in best practices for LED lighting product design and construction.

Co-located with the Cree Shenzhen sales office, the engineering center employs application engineering, technical and sales staff. Cree experts will teach courses and are available to consult with customers on XLamp® LED-based designs, provide on-site handling guidance for LEDs during production, and evaluate LED designs for efficiency and performance.

The modular curriculum, taught in Mandarin, is designed to expand traditional lighting designers’ and manufacturers’ understanding and knowledge of the use of LEDs in general-illumination applications. The curriculum is targeted to include topics such as:

• Basics of LEDs
• Basic color theory and measurement
• Circuitry design for driving Cree XLamp LEDs
• Optical design for Cree XLamp LEDs
• Common problems and answers

“For designers who are creating efficient LED fixtures, using industry-leading Cree XLamp LEDs is only one element of a successful design,” said George Li, Cree Hong Kong director of sales. “By helping our customers create more effective and efficient LED systems, we hope to accelerate the worldwide adoption of high-quality LED lighting.”

Cree held a grand opening ceremony on July 25, 2008, with customers and honorable guests, including Mr. Chen Yan Sheng, president of the China Association of Lighting Industry.
