Date Announced: 05 Aug 2010
Durham, N.C. — Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, expands its LED Module LMR4 product line with the introduction of Cree EasyWhite™ technology and a broad range of available color temperatures. The larger LMR4 portfolio demonstrates Cree’s commitment to accelerating the adoption of LED lighting by simplifying the design process and shortening time-to-market for new LED-based fixtures. Lighting manufacturers now have more options as they develop LED lighting products.
“The addition of EasyWhite options and additional color points gives us increased flexibility when designing fixtures,” said Mark Danesh, President and CEO of DMF Lighting. “Since the LMR4 is drop-in-ready, we can now address more applications within a limited development budget; from general illumination to our most demanding customers such as restaurants or museums, which benefit from the higher light quality of Cree’s TrueWhite® technology.”
The Cree LED Module LMR4 with EasyWhite technology uniquely integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management, making the compact Cree module easy to integrate and fast to market. Designed to last 35,000 hours while consuming just 12 watts of power, it offers 2700-K, 3000-K, 3500-K and 4000-K color temperatures at 80 CRI.
“Cree LED Module customers now have access to EasyWhite technology, allowing them to expand their design possibilities while shortening the manufacturing cycle for new products,” said Scott Schwab, Cree LED Module product line manager. “This further broadens Cree’s portfolio of application-optimized LED Modules, specifically designed to meet the needs of our OEMs.”
The Cree LED Module LMR4 with EasyWhite technology is available in production quantities now with standard lead times. Also available are new module evaluation kits featuring four modules with a mix of Cree TrueWhite and EasyWhite options.
