Cree Expands Industry’s Most Versatile Family of Mid-Power Lighting-Class LEDs

Cree, Inc. introduces new mid-power XLamp® ML-C and ML-E LEDs, bringing increased versatility and flexibility to a wide spectrum of lighting applications. Designed to accelerate the adoption of LED lighting, the expanded XLamp ML family now offers red, green and blue color options, high-voltage and three different price-performance options in the proven and reliable ML package. The ML LED high-voltage options can enable the use of more efficient, smaller drivers to lower cost for applications such as LED replacement lamps.

Short Facts:
• With this expansion, Cree’s XLamp ML family now offers red, green and blue color options, high-voltage and three different price-performance options.
• The ML LED high-voltage options enable the use of more efficient, smaller drivers to lower cost for various applications.
• Delivering the flexibility and optimization needed to quickly design a portfolio of products, XLamp ML LEDs can be used for multiple lighting applications, including architectural, hospitality, emergency vehicle, decorative lighting and linear florescent LED replacements.

One Footprint – Different Performance and Application Options:
With a typical voltage of 6.4 V and 9.6 V respectively at 50 mA, the ML-C and ML-E series LEDs provide higher voltage options that can enable the use of more efficient, smaller drivers to lower cost for applications such as LED replacement lamps. Minimum-80, 85 and 90 CRI options are available for all ML White LEDs to address applications, such as retail and restaurant lighting, where high CRI is required.

• One common footprint - 3.45 mm x3.55 mm
◦ML-B LED: Up to 28 lm @ 0.25W
◦ML-C LED: Up to 37 lm @ 0.3W; Parallel, Series Options
◦ML-E LED: Up to 58 lm @ 0.5W; Parallel, Series, Color options
•Minimum-80, 85 and 90 CRI options for all ML-White LEDs
•6000 hours of LM-80 data available now
•Wide viewing angle: 120° - 130°

XLamp ML LEDs deliver the flexibility and optimization needed to quickly design a portfolio of products for multiple lighting applications, including architectural, hospitality, emergency vehicle, decorative lighting, and linear florescent LED replacements. With a shared 3.5mm x 3.45mm footprint, customers can quickly and easily expand or update their product portfolio by leveraging a common ML package.

“Using products from Cree’s ML LED family gives us great flexibility,” said Michael Pena, President, Blue Ridge Lighting Solutions. “From a full white color temperature spectrum and different power ratings to the offer of color LEDs, the family of ML products gives us the capacity to offer our customers a full range of lighting options.”

“Providing the broadest portfolio of LED components is essential to accelerate LED adoption,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior marketing director, LED components. “Cree’s expanded family of optimized ML LEDs further extends the options for our customers to support a wide array of lighting applications without sacrificing lighting-class performance.”

The ML-C LED delivers luminous flux up to 37 lumens in cool white (5000 K) and up to 31 lumens in warm white (3000 K), both at 100 mA. The series versions of XLamp ML-C and ML-E white LEDs have typical voltages of 6.4V and 9.6V, respectively, at 50 mA. The entire family of XLamp ML white LEDs provides 6000 hours of LM-80 data available now, which can speed up the ENERGY STAR® qualification process. The XLamp ML white family is also available in minimum 80, 85 and 90 CRI options.
