Cree Inc. has announced the release of its new EZBright LED power chip that promises twice the brightness of the company's current power chips. The company said its EZBright1000 power chip is designed for general lighting applications, such as home and office lighting, auto headlamps, streetlights, and garage and warehouse low bay lighting, as well as consumer applications including flashlights, camera flash and projection displays.

"This is an important milestone for power LEDs. For the first time, these chips should enable solid-state lamp makers to challenge the efficacy of not only incandescent, but also fluorescent lamps," said Chuck Swoboda, Cree chairman and CEO. "The EZBright1000 LED power chip is one of several advancements we are working on to help drive LEDs into more mainstream lighting applications."

"The blue EZBright1000 power chip, measured as a bare die, exhibits power output up to 370mW at 350mA of drive current and 800mW at 1A of drive current," stated Scott Schwab, Cree VP and general manager of optoelectronics. "This product should enable our customers to reach new levels of power output and efficiency from a single chip and redefine what is possible with power LEDs."

EZBright1000 power chip is the third product released based on the Cree EZBright platform, which features a proprietary optical design that delivers an optimal Lambertian radiation pattern with low emission losses and high efficiency, said the company.

EZBright1000 LEDs are now available in commercial quantities.
