Cree’s Enhanced XLamp CXA2 LEDs Set New Performance Standard

CXA2 LEDs deliver the best reliability, highest efficacy and new premium colors including high fidelity (98 CRI) and specialty color points with up to 50% higher efficacy than LEDs of similar sizes and light quality. The CXA2 Standard Density LEDs deliver up to 10% higher light output levels across all CRIs and light emitting surface sizes. Customers can upgrade existing designs and sell to color quality conscious applications: museums, retail, 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.
