Cree introduces next-generation color LEDs

With a new range of multi-color LEDs, Cree addresses a wider spectrum of applications such as architectural, vehicle and display lighting. The company also introduces a new discrete LED platform which offers twice the performance in terms of lumens-per-dollar than earlier models.


Cree XLamp XB-D color LEDs extend the double lumens-per-dollar performance of the XB package to color LEDs, delivering up to 40 percent higher maximum light output than XP-E color LEDs. The combination of performance and the small size of XB-D color LEDs enable better color mixing and lower system cost through fewer LEDs. Now available in color as well as existing white color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 6200 K, customers can support a full range of color in the single XB footprint.


Cree XLamp XM-L color LEDs are the brightest and smallest multi-colored LED of their power class, delivering red, green, royal blue and white in one LED at twice the lumens-per-dollar of the MC-E color LED. The XM-L color LED is 60 percent smaller than the MC-E LED, reducing the distance between LED die, to create a small optical source for excellent optical control, efficient color mixing and simplified design.


XLamp XB-D color LEDs deliver up to 1416 mW for royal blue, 92 lumens for blue, 198 lumens for green, 210 lumens for red and 261 lumens for red-orange, all at 1A in the 2.45 mm x 2.45 mm footprint.


XLamp XM-L color LEDs deliver up to 89 lumens for royal blue, 214 lumens for green, 229 lumens for red and 272 lumens for white at 1A in the 5 mm x 5 mm footprint.

Cree XLamp XB-D and XM-L color LED samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
