Cree LED offers one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of application-optimized LED chips and components, leading the industry in performance and reliability. With more than thirty years of experience, we develop products backed by expert design assistance, superior sales support, and industry-best global customer service.

Roots of innovation

Founded in 1987, Cree LED began with a focus on semiconductor materials and fueled the adoption of blue LED die in automotive and display backlighting applications.

Throughout the 1990’s we further refined LED technology and became a leading innovator in the space. Cree LED accelerated the LED Lighting Revolution in 2006 with the launch of the industry’s first packaged lighting-class LED, the XLamp® XR-E LED.

Ever since, we’ve driven innovation that established LEDs as the primary illumination technology used in general lighting and large video display applications. Today, we continue to expand and innovate with best-in-class LED solutions
