Cree Inc. announces the availability of brighter Cree XLamp XT-E and XM-L High-Voltage LEDs to provide manufacturers more efficient, cost-effective components. The new, high-performance LEDs leverage the SC3 Technology Platform, which also powered the previously introduced XLamp XB-D and XT-E LEDs. The SC3 Technology Platform, built on Cree's advanced silicon carbide technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor, and boasts a new package design.

Leveraging the SC3 Technology Platform, the brighter XT-E and XM-L High-Voltage LEDs deliver up to 22% more lumens than their predecessors. XLamp XT-E and XM-L High Voltage LEDs are designed to use lower cost, higher efficiency and smaller size drivers than standard-voltage LEDs. The brighter high-voltage XLamp XT-E and XM-L LEDs provide comparable performance to their standard-voltage counterparts, eliminating the trade-off of optimizing for either LED efficacy or driver efficiency. The new high-voltage XLamp LEDs provide customers with more design options to address a wider spectrum of small indoor and outdoor lighting applications such as accent lights and replacement lamps.

The XT-E High-Voltage LEDs can deliver up to 357 lumens at 3 watts in cool white (6,500 K) and up to 275 lumens at 3 watts in warm white (3,000 K), both at 85° C. The XM-L High-Voltage LEDs can deliver up to 647 lumens at 6 watts in cool white (6,500 K) and 555 lumens at 6 watts in warm white (3,000 K), both at 85°C.
