Cree XLamp® XR-E LEDs chosen for LLF’s revolutionary new down light fixture

DURHAM, NC, FEBRUARY — Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a leader in LED lighting components, today announced that its award-winning XLamp XR-E LED has been chosen by LED Lighting Fixtures, Inc. (LLF) for its first product, a six-inch down light that produces 650 lumens at 10-12 watts.

At approximately 60 lumens per watt for the entire fixture, the new LLF lights are the industry’s most efficient general lighting fixtures for home and office.

“The new LLF fixtures can change the way the lighting industry thinks about LEDs,” said Chuck Swoboda, Cree chairman and CEO. “This product takes maximum advantage of our new lighting-class LEDs. This is the first LED down light to deliver on the promise and capability of LEDs with better efficiency and lifetimes than the typical incandescent or compact fluorescent products being used today.”

LLF tested a number of LEDs in developing its breakthrough design but chose the XR-E from Cree. “Cree’s performance is unmatched with the new XR-E design and recent advances in its power-package technology,” stated Gerry Negley, LLF’s chief technology officer.

Cree’s XR-E LEDs are the best-performing power LEDs commercially available in the industry. The XR-E LED produces typical luminous flux of approximately 80 lumens at the component level at 350 mA and up to 210 lumens at 1 A. The XR-E LED is currently in stock and available from Cree and its distribution partners.
