Cree’s New Green XLamp XR-E LEDs Are 70 Percent Brighter

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED solid-state lighting components, today announced commercial availability of green XLamp® XR-E LEDs that are 70-percent brighter than the company’s previous green power LEDs.

The new green XR-E produces maximum luminous flux of 87.5 lumens at 350 mA. The new green XR-E LEDs complement the previously released blue XR-E LEDs for industry-leading performance in RGB LED applications.

“Cree’s new green and blue XLamp XR-E LEDs deliver a significant performance increase for the LED industry,” said Norbert Hiller, Cree vice president and general manager for lighting LEDs. “These new XLamp LEDs allow our customers to build more-efficient color-changing LED lighting systems and fixtures using fewer LEDs. Performance boosts at this level make RGB LED systems far easier to design and more cost-effective.”

Cree’s green and blue XR-E LEDs are the newest lighting-class members of the award-winning XLamp XR-E family, which includes industry-leading performance in warm- and cool-white LEDs. All are available in production quantities. Additional information about XLamp LEDs can be obtained by calling XLamp Sales at 919-313-5300 or at www.cree.com/xlamp .
