CXA2 LED ArraysCXA2 LED Arrays - Cree's XLamp CXA2 LED arrays are members of the second generation of the CXA family that deliver up to 33% higher-efficacy than the first generation in the same LES. The higher-performance CXA2 LED arrays allow lighting manufacturers to achieve the same or better performance with a smaller LES. This enables a radical reduction in system size and cost. CXA2 LED arrays share the same physical design as the previous generation.  More...

XLamp® MHD-G and MHD-E LED ArraysXLamp® MHD-G and MHD-E LED Arrays - The XLamp® MHD-G and MHD-E LED from Cree is a category of high-power LED arrays that delivers a better way to achieve low-cost systems than multiple mid-power (MP) LEDs. Built using Cree’s high-reliability ceramic package technology, the XLamp MHD-G and MHD-E is able to operate at higher-temperatures than MP LEDs with no reduction in rated lifetime, enabling an impressive 60% reduction in heat sink size and cost. Using many times fewer LEDs than MP LEDs to achieve the same performance, the XLamp MHD-G and MHD-E LED is optimized to simplify LED system designs for directional and semi‑directional applications.  More...

Product Information

Cree Product Characterization ToolProduct Characterization Tool (PCT)
The Cree Product Characterization Tool (PCT) allows you to select from multiple lighting-system design parameters to compare up to three LED models simultaneously.  The PCT uses specifications and characteristics from LED data sheets to accurately compare LED parameters with changes in flux, price and junction temperature. The PCT can compare up to three LED models side-by-side to aid in making critical design choices.  More...
