New Cree High-Density Discrete LED Delivers Industry’s Highest Performance

Stocks in this article: CREE

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) introduces the XLamp ® XB-H LED, the brightest discrete in Cree’s high-density (HD) class of LEDs, delivering a breakthrough combination of lumen output and efficacy in a small package. The XB-H LED brings the lighting-class performance of the XP-G2 LED into a package that is 50 percent smaller. Delivering more than 500 lumens at 1.5A, 25º C in a 2.45 mm 2 package, the Cree ® XB-H LED can enable luminaires that use the same size footprint XB-D LED to triple their light output at the same efficacy.

The XB-H joins the XQ-E in the family of HD class discrete LEDs that offer the industry’s highest optical control factor (OCF), a measurement of how LED size and performance benefit directional lighting applications. High OCF LEDs enable lighting manufacturers to improve the performance of any lighting design, create smaller and less expensive systems, and develop new lighting solutions that were previously not possible.

“Cree is the first LED manufacturer to bring this level of performance to such a small size,” said Roger Suen, Supply Chain Management Director, Light Engine Ltd. “With a high optical control factor, the XB-H LEDs enable new levels of brightness and optical control to improve design flexibility, increase performance and lower system cost without sacrificing reliability.”

Utilizing Cree’s proven and highly reliable ceramic package technology, the new XB-H LED delivers long L70 lifetimes at both high temperature and current. In addition, the XB-H offers compatibility with most optics designed for the Cree XP family of LEDs, allowing lighting manufacturers to leverage the optics of existing lighting designs and improve time to market.

“We are excited to offer our breakthrough high-density performance to manufacturers who prefer to work with discrete LEDs,” said Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. “Delivering up to 175 lumens-per-watt efficacy at 1W, 25°C in its small package, the XB-H LED sets a new performance standard for high power LEDs. Our new HD class of discrete LEDs demonstrates Cree’s commitment to offering customers the best options for their applications.”
