Cree Introduces Industry’s Brightest, Highest Performing Single-Die LEDs

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) once again sets an LED industry performance milestone with the commercial availability of XLamp ® XM-L2 LEDs. The new XM-L2 LED delivers up to 186 lumens-per-watt at 350 mA, 25°C, a level of performance only available in a lab setting just three years prior. Built on Cree’s revolutionary SC³ Technology™ next generation LED platform, the new XM-L2 LEDs double the lumens-per-dollar and deliver 20 percent more lumens-per-watt over the original XM-L LED – enabling lighting manufacturers to use fewer LEDs to deliver a better lighting system for less cost.

The new XM-L2 LEDs are designed for very high lumen applications such as indoor, high-bay and outdoor lighting. The high-performance XM-L2 LEDs are compatible with existing XM-L LED designs and leverage the 5mm x 5mm XM footprint – allowing customers to easily incorporate the XM-L2 LEDs into existing XM LED designs to shorten the fixture design cycle and improve time-to-market.

“We’re excited that Cree has improved the performance of the XM package with the XLamp XM-L2 LED,” said Jeff Rogers, vice president of sales and marketing, Musco Sports Lighting. “XM-L2 allows us to boost the performance of our existing XM-L designs without changing optics or drivers.”

The XM-L2 LED offers the unique combination of very high efficacy at high drive currents, delivering an unprecedented 1198 lumens at 116 lumens-per-watt efficacy at 3A, 25°C. The XM-L2 is the eighth product built on Cree’s SC³ Technology platform. The innovative platform leverages Cree’s advanced silicon carbide technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor and boasts a new package design to deliver the most advanced LED components in the industry.

“The XM-L2 LED efficiently delivers hundreds of lumens per LED, allowing us to significantly reduce the number of LEDs in our designs,” said Steve Walczak, director of engineering, Sternberg Lighting. “By using fewer LEDs, we can simplify design and production, ultimately reducing cost without sacrificing light output or quality for our end customers.”
