Cree Brings Lighting-Class LEDs to the Half-Watt LED Market

XLamp® ML-E LED Enables ENERGY STAR® Compliant Distributed Illumination Products

Cree, Inc.(Nasdaq: CREE) is raising the standard for half-watt LED devices with the commercial availability of its XLamp® ML-E LED. The lighting-class XLamp ML-E provides lighting designers with a compact and cost-effective solution for distributed LED arrays that can enable them to meet the stringent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR® performance criteria.

"When we set out to build our new linear light engine, we required the efficacy and reliability of XLamp LEDs, but wanted a smaller package size," said Markus Vockenroth, managing director, MAL Effekt-Technik GmbH. "The XLamp ML-E LED was the perfect combination of price and performance for our application."

The XLamp ML-E delivers lighting-class performance in applications where a smooth, uniform appearance is required, such as LED fluorescent-tube replacement, ceiling-mounted panel lights and under-cabinet lighting. Unlike other low-power LEDs originally developed for consumer electronics and backlighting applications, the XLamp ML-E delivers the segment-leading color binning, efficacy, thermal resistance and the long-term reliability required for ENERGY STAR® luminaires and bulbs.

"The ML-E offers the lighting design community a simple and affordable solution for a major portion of the solid-state lighting market," said Paul Thieken, Cree, director of marketing, LED Components. "Designers of applications like fluorescent-tube replacement no longer need to settle for LEDs that aren't lighting-class."

The XLamp ML-E delivers full-size features in a small, affordable package with luminous flux of up to 58 lm at 150 mA in cool white (5000 K) and up to 48 lm in warm white (3000 K). Like the XLamp MX-6 and MX-3 LEDs, the ML-E provides a tightly controlled uniform angular chromaticity and a 120-degree viewing angle, optimized for distributed lighting applications. The XLamp ML-E also shares the same ANSI-compliant chromaticity binning used by the XLamp XP and MX families of LEDs.
