Cree announces 131 lm/W white LED
Looks like the industry is marching ahead on improving white LED efficacy much faster than predicted. Cree has announced a 20mA EZBrite platform that has been certified at 131 lm/W. This is a huge leap for white LED's at large. While the device is a .29 mm lab prototype, it now means that commercial devices will exceed 90 lm/W almost a year before it was predicted.
