XP-G3 LED Delivers More than 205 Lumens-Per-Watt

DURHAM, N.C. -- Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) introduces the XLamp® XP-G3 LED, delivering 31 percent more lumens and 8 percent higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the industry-leading XP-G2 LED. Leveraging key elements of Cree’s SC5 Technology™ Platform, the high-power XP-G3 LED improves the lumen density, voltage characteristics and reliability of previous XP-G generations. This best-in-class performance enables lighting manufacturers to deliver differentiated solutions at lower system costs for applications such as roadway, outdoor area, spot and high-bay lighting.

“We are designing a new series of 130 lumens-per-watt high performance streetlights and the choice to use the new Cree XP-G3 LED was clear,” said Wilbur Tarn, director of OrangeTeK. “The XP-G3 LED delivers high efficacy and high reliability in the familiar XP-G footprint, allowing us to modify elements of an existing design to shorten our design time by half.”

Cree pioneered the industry-standard high power 3535 form factor with the XP platform and continues to deliver breakthrough performance with the XP-G3, achieving over 205 LPW at 350mA and up to 863 lm at 2A. Extending Cree’s leadership in reliability and lumen maintenance, the XP-G3 LED has 6,000 hours of LM-80 data immediately available that provides L90 lifetimes well beyond 50,000 hours, even at an extreme 105°C, 1500 mA test condition.

“Cree is committed to R&D that enables our customers to deliver the best system value in the market with high-power LEDs,” said Dave Emerson, Cree vice president and general manager, LEDs. “The XP-G3 is the first LED in its class to shatter the 200 LPW barrier, setting a new benchmark for the XP-G class of LED and joining Cree’s other high-power LEDs that deliver this level of performance.”  

The new LEDs are characterized and binned at 85°C, available in ANSI White, EasyWhite® 3- and 5-step color temperatures (2700K – 6500K), and CRI options of 70, 80 and 90. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit http://www.cree.com/xlamp/xpg3 to learn more.
