Cree Inc. announced the commercial availability of high-voltage XLamp XT-E and XM-L LEDs optimized for small form factor lighting applications.
The XLamp XT-E and XM-L LEDs can enable the use of more efficient, smaller drivers to lower cost for compact lighting applications such as candelabras and retrofit lamps.
According to Cree, small-form-factor lighting, like candelabras, historically presented a host of challenges for LED technology. Prior LEDs were unable to deliver the required system-level performance in the form factor consumers demanded.
The XLamp XM-L LED delivers up to 600 lm in Cool White (6000K) and up to 462 lm in Warm White (3000K) at 6W, 85°C. The XLamp XT-E LED delivers up to 300 lm in Cool White (6000K) and up to 228 lm in Warm White (3000K) at 3W, 85°C. Both LEDs have a typical voltage of 46V at binning conditions.
Pricing: XM-L High Voltage is in the $3-4 range. XT-E High Voltage is about $1.50-2.50. Both are for moderate volume.
Availability: Now in production quantities with standard lead times.
