Cree’s XLamp CXA2 LEDs Set a New Standard for Better Performance

Cree announces enhancements to its industry-leading XLamp® CXA2 family of chip-on-board (COB) LEDs, including new premium color options, higher light output levels and the longest lifetimes published for this type of LED. The premium color quality options include high fidelity (98 CRI) and specialty color points for the 9 to 19 mm LES sizes with up to 50 percent higher efficacy than LEDs of similar sizes and light quality. These enhancements to the CXA2 family LEDs give Cree’s customers the ability to upgrade the performance of existing designs and to sell their products into lighting applications where color quality is important, such as museum, retail and medical lighting.

“The leading efficacy and excellent reliability of Cree’s CXA2 LEDs allow us to create a complete portfolio of high quality, energy efficient LED track lights,” said Eric Lin, General Manager, Westport International. “With the new premium colors, the CXA2 family will allow us to bring these same advantages to more customers and applications while still leveraging the same, easy-to-use platform.”

The CXA2 Standard Density LEDs now deliver up to 10 percent higher light output levels across all CRIs and light emitting surface (LES) sizes, providing the highest COB LED efficacy for all applications.  Further demonstrating Cree’s leadership in reliability and lumen maintenance, the CXA2 LEDs are the only COB LEDs in the industry to have more than 11,000 hours of LM-80 data available. Based on this data, the CXA2 LEDs provide L90 lifetimes well beyond 60,000 hours, even at extreme 105°C test conditions.

“With these enhancements to the CXA2 family, Cree continues to set the benchmark for high-power LEDs through constant focus on improvement,” said Dave Emerson, Cree LEDs senior vice president and general manager. “With the industry’s best lifetime and the new premium color offerings, we’re giving lighting manufacturers the ability to deliver better light and industry-leading performance to more applications than ever before.”

Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit http://www.cree.com/cxa2 to learn more about the CXA2 LED Arrays and http://www.cree.com/led-components/cxa2premium for more information about the Premium color options.
