"We looked at many different LEDs but selected the XP-G2 LED because of its high performance and proven reliability,' said
XP-G2 LEDs are used in a wide variety of applications, including street and area lighting, PAR replacement lamps and high-performance flashlights. The new XP-G2 LEDs now deliver up to 142 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 85Â°C or 155 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 25Â°C in warm white (3000K), enabling lighting manufacturers to use fewer LEDs to achieve the same brightness at a lower system cost or increase performance levels using the same LED count and power.
"Cree pioneered the industry-standard form factor with the XP-G LED platform and has continued to provide the industry's best performance since its inception,' said
"We do all of our product development in-house and we consistently look to Cree for the latest in LED technology,' said
Cree is also announcing the availability of 6,000 hours of LM-80 long-term testing data for the XP-G2 LED. This LM-80 data provides TM-21 reported L85 lifetimes greater than 36,000 hours, translating to a remarkable 15 percent light loss after four years, even at the maximum current of 1500 mA. In addition, the XP-G2's predecessor, the XLamp XP-G LED, now has more than 12,000 hours of LM-80 data available. All XP-G data sets provide TM-21 reported L95 lifetimes greater than 70,000 hours, or eight years, reflecting the excellent long-term reliability of the XLamp XP package.
The higher performance XLamp XP-G2 LED samples are available now. Production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit www.cree.com/xpg2 to learn more.
