Cree Announces New High Power LEDs with Lowest System Cost

 

September 16, 2014...Cree, Inc. has reexamined the formula for calculating the costs of LED modules and LED lighting. The company noted that while previously, an LED was the most expensive piece of the lighting puzzle, the LED currently makes up only about 30 percent of the total cost. Cree pointed out recently that other components such as the heat sink, the driver, and optics are also high in proportion of total cost, and modules that reduce these costs can save money.


Based upon these ideas of cost savings without compromising performance, the company has introduced the XLamp® MH-B LED, a new generation of high power LEDs. Cree claims that the XLamp MH-B delivers better performance and a more effective way to achieve low-cost systems than mid-power (MP) LEDs. According to Cree this reduction comes from the reduction in the heat sink size and cost as well as a reduction in the required number of LEDs and the size and number of optics.


“Cree has once again invented a lighting-optimized solution that can lower my costs and decrease manufacturing times,” said Frank Chen, technical director, Zhejiang Shenghui Lighting Co., Ltd. and Sengled Optoelectronics Co., Ltd. “While chip-on-board LEDs are an attractive alternative to MP LEDs in terms of reliability and cost, they aren’t compatible with my automated manufacturing processes. The new XLamp® MH-B LED finally gives me a more reliable alternative to mid-power LEDs – I no longer have to compromise my brand and reputation to achieve a lower system cost.”


“The new XLamp® MH-B LED combines the reliability and manufacturability of Cree’s high power LEDs with the simplicity and performance of our CXA LED arrays,” said Paul Thieken, director of marketing, LED components. “MH-B introduces a new technology platform that gives customers the best of both technologies, while avoiding the limitations of mid-power LEDs.”
