Cree CXA Platform LEDs Set Bar For Light Quality And Efficacy

Stocks in this article: CREE

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) expands its industry-leading CXA family with new 95 CRI options and two new LEDs providing lighting manufacturers high-performance, design versatility and low cost in one robust platform. Delivering up to twice the efficacy of equivalent CRI LED light sources, the new CXA CRI options deliver halogen-like color and push the boundaries of lighting-class performance by combining high quality light with unmatched light output and efficacy. Cree’s extended family of CXA LED Arrays include the XLamp ® CXA1304 and CXA1816, providing manufacturers the broadest opportunity to optimize and expand their LED lighting product portfolio.

The new XLamp CXA1304 LED Array is the most compact member of the family, delivering up to 1034 lumens in a 6mm optical source size, and enabling lighting manufacturers to rapidly address small form factor lighting applications. The new XLamp CXA1816 LED Array can enable LED replacements for up to 70 watt ceramic metal halide in spot lighting or for 2000 lumen downlights with a 12mm optical source size.

“The family of CXA LED Arrays appeals to us because of the wide range of lumen options available, all at very high efficacy levels,” said Michael Lin, CEO of Buckingham Industrial Group. “Regardless of the lighting application that we want to address, there is a CXA LED Array offered that is optimized for it.”

“Customers are looking for LED-based halogen replacements that do not have the current trade-off between light quality and output with energy efficiency,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “With Cree’s high CRI CXA LED Arrays, lighting manufacturers finally have a LED solution that can deliver high quality of light combined with high performance.”

All the LEDs in the CXA family offer 6,000 hours of LM-80 data published and are designed to support TM-21 reported L90 lifetime of over four years, even at 105°C. Available in 5000K through 2700K CCTs, the high CRI CXA LED Arrays deliver a typical CRI of 95 with a typical R9 value of 85 at 3000K. All CXA LED Arrays are available in EasyWhite ® color temperatures, providing the LED industry’s best color consistency for designs that use only one LED. The new family of CXA LED Arrays now delivers from 300 to over 10,000 lumens.

XLamp CXA1304 (9V and 37V options available) and CXA1816 LED samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit www.cree.com/cxa to learn more about the new Cree ® CXA LEDs.
