Cree Announces Achievement of LD Industry Milestone with 200 Lumen-Per-Watt LED
Two years after breaking the 200 lumens-per-watt (LPW) R&D efficacy barrier, Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) delivers another industry first with the introduction of the Cree XLamp^® MK-R LEDs. The new MK-R LEDs leverage the SC³ Technology™ next generation LED platform to deliver up to 200 lumen-per-watt (at 1W, 25°C) LEDs.
The new MK-R LEDs make the next generation of 100+ lumens-per-watt system possible for high lumen applications, including outdoor and indoor directional applications, such as halogen replacement lamps. MK-R LEDs are available in EasyWhite^® color temperatures, providing the LED industry's best color consistency for designs that use only one LED. For systems that use multiple LEDs, MK-R enables manufacturers to use fewer LEDs while still maintaining light output and quality, which translates to lower system cost.
