The L2 family features Cree's XLamp design, which provides efficient, environmentally-friendly LED lighting and high light output in a small form factor. Additionally, the L2 family has a unique case temperature test point for engineers to confirm the effectiveness of their thermal management, while maximizing the luminous output with the junction temperature under control. Optional pin headers allow for quick hook-up, thus eliminating the delicate soldering process. The L2 family is comprised of three product series: the PG Series featuring Cree XLamp XP-G LEDs, the ML Series with Cree XLamp XM-L LEDs, and the TG Series with Cree XLamp XT-G LEDs.
