Cree Announces Industry's Brightest and Highest-Efficiency Lighting-Class LED

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq:CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, announces it is demonstrating the newest addition to its lighting-class XLamp(r) LED family -- the XLamp XP-G LED -- at LIGHTFAIR International in New York, May 5-7, 2009.

The cool white XLamp XP-G provides 139 lumens and 132 lumens per Watt at 350 mA. Driven at 1 A, the XP-G produces 345 lumens, which is 37 percent brighter and 53 percent more efficient than the brightest XR-E LED. The XP-G LED has the highest lumen density of any available lighting-class LED, and it is based on the XLamp XP family package.
           
"The XLamp XP-G again raises the level of performance available from our XLamp LED family," said Paul Thieken, Cree, marketing director, LED components. "This product is designed for customers requiring the highest levels of brightness and efficacy."
          
The XLamp XP-G LED is being demonstrated at Cree's LIGHTFAIR International Booth #1463. Cree is currently taking sample requests for the XLamp XP-G and targets the product to be commercially available the third quarter of calendar 2009.
