The licensed patents address various aspects of forming an LED light including optics, heat management, LED power and control, LED light efficiency and light color and uniformity.
 
Certain Cree patents that cover Cree’s networked lighting technology (SmartCast) and color mixing technology (TrueWhite) were excluded from the license.
 
“With intellectual property developed over the past 29 years, Cree has a deep portfolio of technologies that are elemental to the design and manufacture of high-performing LED bulbs and LED luminaires,” stated Brad Kohn, vice president legal and general counsel for Cree.
 
“This recent licensing agreement with Ledvance is yet another example that demonstrates the value of Cree’s R&D investments, as well as the breadth and strength of Cree’s lighting technologies.”
