Lighting-class LED for high-lumen applications

Cree Inc.

Cree, Inc. announces the commercial availability of the industry's brightest, highest-performance lighting-class LEDs. With breakthrough light output and efficacy, Cree XLamp® XM-L LEDs are designed for very-high-lumen applications, such as high-bay or roadway lighting. The XLamp XM-L LED has gone from concept to commercial availability in less than eight months.

Cool white (6500 K) XLamp XM-L LEDs deliver 1000 lumens with 100 lumens per watt efficacy at 3 A. In a compact 5-mm x 5-mm footprint, XM-L LEDs offer the unique combination of very high efficacy at very high drive currents, delivering light output and efficacy of 160 lumens per watt at 350 mA and up to 315 lumens and 150 lumens per watt at 700 mA, providing a 20-percent efficiency gain from the Cree current industry-leading XLamp XP-G LEDs.
