Applying key elements of Cree’s SC5 Technology Platform, the high-power XP-G3 LED improves the lumen density, voltage characteristics and reliability of previous XP-G generations. This best-in-class performance enables lighting manufacturers to deliver differentiated solutions at lower system costs for applications such as roadway, outdoor area, spot and high-bay lighting.
The XP-G3 LED claims to deliver high efficacy and high reliability in the XP-G footprint which has allowed Cree to modify elements of an existing design to shorten the design time by half.
Cree pioneered the industry-standard high power 3535 form factor with the XP platform and continues to deliver breakthrough performance with the XP-G3, achieving over 205 LPW at 350 mA and up to 863 lm at 2 A. Extending Cree’s leadership in reliability and lumen maintenance, the XP-G3 LED has 6,000 hours of LM-80 data immediately available that provides L90 lifetimes well beyond 50,000 hours, even at an extreme 105°C, 1500-mA test condition.
The LEDs are characterized and binned at 85°C, available in ANSI White, EasyWhite 3- and 5-step color temperatures (2700K – 6500K), and CRI options of 70, 80 and 90. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
