New EZBright™ 700 LED power chip broadens Cree’s high-performance chip platform

DURHAM, NC, Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a leader in LED solid-state lighting components, today announced the release of its newest EZBright LED power chip.

The EZBright 700 LED is the latest blue chip product based on Cree’s flagship proprietary EZBright LED platform, which continues to set performance standards across a broad range of the LED marketplace. The EZBright 700 is the brightest, most cost-effective LED chip of its size.

The EZBright 700 achieves a typical output of 260 mW at 350 mA and 440 mW at 700 mA. It is targeted for general lighting applications, including auto headlamps, streetlights, camera flash, projection lighting, personal lighting and indoor and outdoor display applications. The EZBright platform features a proprietary optical design that delivers an optimal Lambertian radiation pattern with reduced emission losses and high efficiency compared to Cree’s other LED chip platforms. This high-efficiency design scales well with the size of the chip, a significant achievement for the industry.

“Cree recognizes the market need for high performance at low cost across a range of lighting applications,” stated David Davito, Cree director of marketing for optoelectronics. “With the mid-size format EZBright 700, we’re expanding the EZBright line to address a broader range of lighting markets.”

EZBright 700 LEDs are now shipping in production quantities. For additional information on Cree EZBright blue and green LEDs, please call (800) 533-2583 or visit www.cree.com.
