Cree® XLamp® XP-L LED Is the Industry’s Brightest and Most Efficient Single-Die LED

Cree XLamp® XP-L LEDs are the first commercially available single-die LED to achieve breakthrough efficacy of up to 200 LPW at 350 mA. Delivering up to 1226 lumens in a 3.45 mm x 3.45 mm package, the XP-L LED enables an immediate performance increase of 50 percent or more as a drop-in upgrade for XP-G based lighting designs. As the brightest member of the industry’s only family of high-density class discrete LEDs, the XP-L LED redefines performance, cost and size of LED lighting.

Cree XLamp XP-L LED“We’re excited about the new XLamp XP-L LED because its next-level performance enables us to create the next generation of light output and efficacy for our directional lighting products,” said Mike Joye, president, Auroralight. “Since XP-L uses the existing XP footprint, we can expand our product lineup quickly and without the burden of increased development time and cost that would be expected for such a significant performance enhancement.”

As the brightest member of the industry’s only family of high-density class discrete LEDs, the new XP-L LED also touts the industry’s highest optical control factor (OCF), a measurement of the impact that LED size and performance have on directional lighting applications. With its high OCF, the XP-L will enable lighting manufacturers to improve the performance of existing lighting designs in the XP footprint, reduce the size and cost of new designs and create innovative new solutions to address applications ranging from lamps to stadium lighting.

“We evaluated many high power LEDs before deciding on Cree’s new high-density discrete LEDs,” said Jason Gerard, group GM, engineering, Gerard Lighting Group. “Cree’s high-density LEDs enable us to develop a core design that was not possible with previous LEDs for our given design targets. We’re excited that we can use the newest of Cree’s innovations to make our products stand apart from everyone else’s.”

Characterized and binned at 1050 mA, 85°C, the XP-L LED is available in up to 90 CRI and color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 8300 K. As a “successor” product to the XLamp XM-L2, lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification can use just 3,000 hours of LM-80 data, potentially saving up to four months in the approval process.

Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit Cree's XP-L microsite or send an email to XLampSales@cree.com to learn more.

Measuring the Oxygen Content of Blood with LEDs

Measuring the Oxygen Content of Blood with LEDs Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive method for determining haemoglobin (Hb) saturation through oxygen in the blood and heart frequency. It uses the fact that oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor haemoglobin absorb red and infrared light differently. In order to measure the oxygen content reliably, LEDs with ... Read more »
