Cree has commercial samples of its brightest LED
Cree has announced commercial availability of its highest-lumen white LED, the XLamp MC-E LED.
At 9.8W, the LED provides up to 790 lumens at 6000K and up to 605 lumens at 3000K, this is four times the light output of the supplier’s existing product in this range and the footprint is just 7x9mm.
“Imagine the design implications for something like a street light – if you could reduce the size by roughly 75% without compromising on lumen output,” said Norbert Hiller, Cree v-p and general manager for lighting LEDs.
“Or consider the efficiencies that could be gained in an MR16 bulb application,” said Hiller.
