Redefining What's Possible in Lighting
The new Cree® SC5 Technology™ Platform
A fundamental breakthrough in lighting-class LED performance that doubles light output to radically lower system cost.
(What else would you expect from innovators at Cree?)
Powering the next generation of Extreme High Power (XHP) LEDs that can reduce system costs by up to
› SIGN-UP to be one of the first to sample the powerful new Cree XHP LEDs.
SC5 Technology Platform
Significantly reduce thermal, mechanical & optical costs at the system level.
Extreme High Power LEDs
A new product class & new product families
Extreme high power Cree XHP LEDs
2X the light output
Compact package L90 lifetimes at high operating temperature & current
Change how you think about LED system cost
Change how you think about LED lighting design
Cree XHP LEDs reduce size and BOM
- » Smaller heat sink enabled by better reliablility at high temperature
- » Fewer LEDs mean smaller PCB
- » Industry-best lumen density shrinks optics
- » Beter lumen maintenance means fewer LEDs
Choose smaller or more powerful
at a lower system cost
- » Cree XHP LEDs with double the lumens & double the light output
- » XHP LEDs can take the heat-no need for a bigger heat sink
- » Upgrade performance & reliability without retooling
Just how do Cree extreme high power LEDs lower your system costs?
Smaller PCB, fewer LED placements
|Mid-power LEDs 1900 lumens @ Tsp = 70°C 17.5W (109 LPW)|
|CREE XHP LEDs 1900 lumens @ Tsp = 105°C 16.9W (112 LPW)|
Cost Savings = $3.52
Cree XHP LEDs' higher operating temperatures shrink heat sinks and luminaire designs
More light in a single, smaller LED means smaller optics
Shrink PCB, TIR reflector & diffuser optics
Stop adding LEDs to compensate for L70 life
Cree XHP LEDs deliver a long lifetime at high temperature & drive current
L90 @ 35k hours
Less lumen loss over time means fewer LEDs up front
Save up to 20% in energy use
Cree XHP LEDs rated at L90
lose less than 10% of their light at 35k hrs
Mid-power LEDs rated at L70
lose 30% of their light so the lighting design requires 20% more LEDs to start.
This adds LED, PCB, heat sink and driver cost, plus 20% more energy usage.
