Cree SC5 Technology Platform Doubles LED Light Output

October 30, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Cree energy manageCree says its new SC5 Technology Platform with Extreme High Power (XHP) LEDs can reduce system costs by up to 40 percent in most lighting applications.

The SC5 Technology Platform doubles the lumens out of a single LED and significantly reduces thermal, mechanical and optical costs at the system level. It is built on Cree’s silicon carbide technology, featuring advancements in epitaxial structure, chip architecture and an advanced light conversion system.

The first available family of XHP LEDs is the XLamp XHP50 LED, delivering up to 2250 lumens at 19 watts from a 5.0 x 5.0-mm package. At its maximum current, the XHP50 provides twice the light output of the industry’s brightest single-die LED, says the company.
