DURHAM, N.C. - Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, announces the commercial availability of the XLamp MC-E LED, the highest-lumen LED in the award-winning XLamp family.

The multi-chip XLamp MC-E retains the same 7mm x 9mm footprint as Cree's existing XLamp XR family LEDs while providing four times the light output of the existing XR-E, the highest lumen output commercially available for a package of this size. This powerful combination is designed to enable new applications and reductions in overall system cost compared to other LED packages. At 9.8W, the XLamp MC-E LED provides up to 790 lumens at 6000K and up to 605 lumens at 3000K.

"Cree's XLamp MC-E LED is a lighting-class solution for applications that require high lumen output in a small footprint," said Norbert Hiller, Cree vice president and general manager for lighting LEDs. "Imagine the design implications for something like a street light - if you could reduce the size by roughly 75 percent without compromising on lumen output. Or consider the efficiencies that could be gained in an MR16 bulb application."

The MC-E has already been designed into a number of products and applications, as customers can benefit from increased design flexibility and reduced overall system cost over other, lower flux-output LED packages, without compromising on quality.
