Driving the next generation of mainstream LED lighting adoption, Cree has introduced the breakthrough XLamp XB-D LED. The first LED based on a new Cree technology platform, the XLamp XB-D LED ushers in a new era of price-performance for lighting-class LEDs. This LED can simplify designs, ultimately removing a key barrier to widespread LED implementation - up-front system cost, the vendor said.
The XB-D LED delivers twice the lumens-per-dollar of other LEDs, in the industry¡¦s smallest lighting-class footprint of 2.45 mm x 2.45 mm, Cree said. The XB-D LED is 48% smaller than the XLamp XP package and ideal for lighting applications where high lumen density and compact light sources are required. Leveraging Cree's proven silicon carbide technology and expertise, the XB-D LED delivers up to 139 lumens and 136 lumens/watt in cool white (6000K) or up to 107 lumens and 105 lumens/watt in warm white (3000K), both at 350 mA and 85 degrees Celsius.
