New Cree High-Voltage, Lighting-Class LEDs Enable More-Efficient LED Bulbs

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, extends its lighting-class LED leadership into high-voltage LEDs with the commercial availability of new XLamp® MX-6S and MX-3S LEDs.

With the same footprint and high-quality performance as the XLamp MX-6 and MX-3 LEDs, the MX-6S and MX-3S LEDs offer new high-voltage configurations designed for space-constrained LED lamps and bulbs. For these applications, high-voltage LEDs can be used to achieve smaller, more-efficient power supplies and thermal systems.

The XLamp MX-6S LED delivers luminous flux of up to 139 lumens at 60 mA/20 V in 6000 K and 114 lumens in 3000 K. The XLamp MX-3S LED provides up to 122 lumens at 115 mA/10.7 V in 6000 K and 100 lumens in 3000 K. The MX series LEDs deliver lighting-class performance for high-voltage LEDs, including high reliability, high efficacy and industry-leading color consistency.

“These new XLamp LED products can enable LED lamp manufacturers to create more-efficient and cost-effective designs in applications such as A-19-bulbs or GU10 lamps,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “With the addition of these products, Cree continues to deliver the industry’s highest performance, application-optimized LED components to the lighting-design community.”

XLamp MX-6S and MX-3S LEDs are available now in production quantities with standard lead times. To locate a distributor, please visit
