Cree redefines High-Power LEDs for lighting with new SC5 Technology Platform doubling light output to radically lower system cost

Cree achieves another fundamental breakthrough in lighting-class LED performance with the groundbreaking SC5 Technology™ Platform. The new platform powers the next generation of lighting with the introduction of Extreme High Power (XHP) LEDs. This new class of LEDs can reduce system costs by up to 40 percent in most lighting applications.

"As a technology company, we're focused on breaking the performance barriers that really matter to the lighting industry," said Chuck Swoboda, Cree Chairman and CEO. "The SC5 Technology™ Platform redefines what is possible in high-power LEDs by doubling the lumens out of a single LED, giving lighting manufacturers the flexibility to innovate significantly lower cost systems. This new platform establishes a new benchmark for LED lumens per wafer, which we believe will define the long-term success of our industry. This also validates our belief that high-power LED technology enables the best lighting system designs and a better lighting experience for end customers."

The SC5 Technology Platform is built on Cree's industry-best silicon carbide technology and features significant advancements in epitaxial structure, chip architecture and an advanced light conversion system optimized for best thermal and optical performance. With these advancements, the SC5 Technology Platform achieves unparalleled lumen density and longer lifetime at higher operating temperatures than previous LED technology, which can significantly reduce thermal, mechanical and optical costs at the system level.

"LEDs are no longer the most expensive portion of an LED lighting system, but they fundamentally determine the overall system performance and cost," said Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. "While other LED manufacturers only promise incrementally lower LED cost, our new Extreme High Power (XHP) LEDs leveraging the SC5 Technology™ Platform directly address the increased burden that thermal, mechanical and optical elements now place on total system cost."

As the first LEDs to incorporate the SC5 Technology Platform, the new XHP LEDs introduce significant advancements in light output, colour consistency and design flexibility. XLamp XHP50 and XHP70 LEDs shatter the industry’s perceived limit of LED lumen density by delivering up to 2546 lumens at 19 watts from a 5.0 x 5.0 mm package and up to 4022 lumens at 32 watts from a 7.0 x 7.0 mm package, respectively. Through improvements in the light conversion process, Cree has reduced LED-to-LED colour variations and, among other options, offers XHP LEDs in 2-step and 3-step EasyWhite® bins for 3500K through 2700K in 80 and 90 CRI. The XHP LEDs introduce a new, innovative package that allows manufacturers to choose either 6 V or 12 V configurations from the same LED through the solder pad design on the circuit board.
