Cree introduces industry's first no-compromise, ceramic, mid-power LEDs

Cree is redefining the mid-power LED market with the new XLamp® XH Series LEDs — the first family of mid-power, ceramic LEDs that offer no-compromise performance and reliability. Unlike today’s common mid-power plastic packages, XLamp XH-G and XH-B LEDs enable lighting manufacturers to create a new generation of more energy-efficient, longer-life LED lighting solutions without sacrificing cost or performance. XH LEDs are optimised for fluorescent-replacement-lighting applications, such as troffers and panel lights, where high efficacy, lifetime and smooth appearance are critical.

The XH-G LED delivers leading efficacy levels of up to 170 lumens-per-watt at 65 mA, 5000 K, 80 CRI and 25°C. In addition, the ceramic-based XH LEDs are designed to deliver the long L70 lifetimes at high temperature and high current operation of Cree’s other high-power LEDs, such as XP and XT LEDs. In comparison, plastic LEDs are known for very short L70 lifetimes at high-temperature and high-current operation. The XH LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to offer products that meet the reliability expectations of LED technology.

“We're excited that Cree is offering high-quality, ceramic-based, mid-power LEDs designed for real-world lighting applications,” said Roger Suen, supply chain management director, Light Engine. “The XH LED family gives us confidence in providing products that deliver stable lumen maintenance and good colour consistency that cannot be duplicated by plastic packages.”

“The use of plastic packages for lighting solutions places a high degree of risk for end-customers and the industry in general,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “The XH LEDs provide peace-of-mind to lighting manufacturers while enabling them to better differentiate their products in the marketplace.”

Both XH-G and XH-B LEDs share a common 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm footprint package with a 13 percent wider beam angle than most plastic mid-power LEDs. Cree® XLamp XH LEDs are offered in 2700-K to 7000-K colour temperatures with high-CRI options available. Samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
