Cree Introduces Industry’s Brightest, Highest Efficacy Color LEDs

Cree, Inc. announces commercial availability of XLamp® XP-E2 color LEDs. The new XP-E2 color LEDs deliver up to 88 percent higher maximum light output compared to alternative high-power color LEDs, enabling lighting manufacturers to more cost-effectively address a wide spectrum of applications such as architectural, vehicle and display lighting.

Built on Cree’s revolutionary SC³ Technology™ next-generation LED platform, the new XP-E2 color LEDs deliver higher lumens-per-watt and lumens-per-dollar compared to the original XP-E color LEDs to lower system costs for existing XP-E color designs. The new XP-E2 color LEDs leverage the same XP footprint (3.45mm x 3.45mm) and are optically compatible with the original XP-E LED – providing drop-in-ready performance enhancements to shorten design cycle and improve customer time to market.

“We are excited that Cree is offering higher performance color LEDs in the XP footprint,” said Greg Campbell, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Lumenpulse. “The brighter XP-E2 color LEDs enable Lumenpulse to continue to provide innovative, high-performance LED lighting systems.”

XLamp XP-E2 color LEDs deliver up to 1409 mW for royal blue, 109 lumens for blue, 253 lumens for green, 203 lumens for amber, 193 lumens for red-orange and 155 lumens for red, all at maximum drive currents in the 3.45mm x 3.45mm footprint.

Samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Cree® XLamp XP-E2 color LEDs are available in red, red-orange, amber, green, blue and royal blue. Please visit http://www.cree.com/xpe2 to learn more about the new XP-E2 color LEDs.
