LED Performance Gain for Next Generation Lighting

27 April 2017

The next generation of Cree’s lighting-class LEDs will be powered by the NX technology platform, enabling the new Extreme Density (XD) LED products. The latter delivers up to four times higher lumen density than Cree’s previous generation of high power LEDs. This technology eliminates current constraints for a wide spectrum of lighting applications such as color-mixing, directional lighting and industrial lighting.

The NX technology platform embodies advances in a number of components and technologies, including the new Dmax LED chip, a more efficient phosphor system, new package designs and simpler manufacturing processes. The XLamp XD16 LED is optimized for applications that require high light output and high lumens-per-watt.

The first product available is the XLamp XD16 LED that delivers a lumen density of up to 264 lm per square-millimeter, which is 50 percent higher than the best LEDs currently available. Specifically optimized for applications that require high light output and high lumens-per-watt, such as street lights and high bays, the new XLamp XD16 LEDs enable higher performance luminaires with better light control. The ceramic-based XD16 LED addresses challenges with assembly, thermal design, optical design and reliability experienced with other competing LED technology platforms.

Engineering samples of XLamp® XD16 LED will be available by late spring, with production quantities to be available by the end of summer.
