Cree's new XHP35 family of high-power LEDs boosts output by 50%

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the XLamp XHP35 family of LEDs, which yields 50% more light output than Cree's previous highest-performing single-die LED, setting a new performance standard for the 3.5mm footprint.

Built on Cree's SC5 Technology platform, the XHP35 introduces the firm's high-voltage power die architecture, empowering manufacturers to unleash the full capacity of extreme high-power LEDs using existing drivers. The XHP35 delivers up to 1833 lumens without the optical inefficiencies of a multi-die LED to enable new designs with reduced size and lower system costs, says Cree.

"The XHP35 LED brings the performance of Cree's Extreme High Power LEDs to the XP footprint," comments Jorge Fraile, CEO of Hispaled. "In addition to delivering an impressive amount of light, the XHP35 LED allows us to leverage existing drivers to achieve the full performance of Cree's high-power LEDs at lower drive currents."

Cree says that, unlike other existing high-power LEDs, the XHP35 family uses a new 12V monolithic power die to deliver extreme high-power performance at drive currents at or less than 1A, making the use of high-power LEDs more accessible for lighting designers. This is uniquely enabled by Cree's SC5 Technology Platform, which is built on Cree's silicon carbide technology and features advances in epitaxial structure, chip architecture and a light conversion system optimized for thermal and optical performance.

The XHP35 LEDs are available in high-density and high-intensity versions that are optimized to deliver the maximum performance for specific applications. The XHP35 High Density LED delivers new levels of light output in the compact XP footprint for high-lumen applications, such as outdoor and high-bay lighting. The XHP35 High Intensity LED is optimized to deliver maximum candela through secondary optics to boost performance and reduce size for applications requiring high light intensity (such as stadium, torch and track lighting).

Samples of both High Density and High Intensity LEDs are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times. The XHP35 LEDs are available with a color rendering index (CRI) of 70, 80 and 90 and correlated color temperatures (CCTs) ranging from 2700K to 8300K with 2-step and 3-step EasyWhite options.
