Cree expands design and evaluation services to speed LED product development

Business news |

Cree’s TEMPO Thermal Simulation is described as a cost-effective solution to model the thermal performance of prototype LED fixtures. Effective LED luminaire thermal design is essential to ensure reliability and optimum performance. TEMPO Thermal Simulation predicts the thermal behavior of LED-based fixtures, including junction temperature, heat sink temperature, temperature profile and airflow profile.

Cree has also added an additional, quick turn-around photometric evaluation option to its TEMPO SPOT service to help prevent costly design mistakes at any step of the development process. TEMPO SPOT services are designed to give a rapid photometric view on a prototype’s performance. This new service gives customers access to complex, costly equipment to measure the photometric performance of luminaires and replacement lamps. Customers can choose integrated measurements from a 2-meter sphere or 3-D measurements from a Type C Goniophotometer to visualize and predict the photometric performance of an installed luminaire.

Cree currently provides TEMPO Services out of its Cree Technology Centers, located in Research Triangle Park, N.C. and Santa Barbara, California. Future TEMPO Service locations in Shenzhen, Munich, Shanghai and Taiwan are targeted to open in 2012.
