Cree Inc. announces the MT-G2 LED, the company's first EasyWhite LED array built on the SC3 Technology Platform. The new XLamp MT-G2 LED delivers LED lighting manufacturers 25% percent brighter LEDs compared to the previous MT-G, enabling a wider spectrum of high lumen applications. MT-G2 LEDs are designed for high output, directional lighting applications and are a suitable replacement for lighting applications that currently use halogen lamps. The MT-G2 LEDs are optimized for use in track, accent, lamp retrofit, down lighting, and other applications where color quality, consistency, and optical control are required.

Featuring Cree EasyWhite Technology, the MT-G2 LED delivers up to 2,100 lumens in warm white (3,000 K) at 25 watts, 85°C and provides high color consistency with superior optical control. The new, brighter MT-G2 LED shares the same footprint as the original MT-G LED, providing designers with a seamless upgrade path to shorten the LED luminaire and retrofit lamp design cycle and improve time-to-market. The MT-G2 LED is designed to be used as a single component in an LED design to better emulate the filament appearance of incumbent lighting products and simplify design and manufacturing.

The MT-G2 LED is the latest product built on Cree's SC3 Technology Platform, joining XB-D, XT-E, XT-E High-Voltage, and XM-L High-Voltage LEDs. The SC3 Technology Platform leverages Cree's advanced silicon carbide technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor, and showcases a new package design.

With an 8.9 x 8.9 mm footprint, the MT-G2 LED is available in 2 and 4-step EasyWhite color temperatures ranging from 2,700 to 5,000 K. The new LEDs are available in minimum 80 and 90 CRI options and feature multiple voltage selections, including higher voltages that enable the use of smaller, more efficient drivers to lower system cost.
