This project plans to develop an optimized LED fixture design for efficient manufacture that can be readily integrated into buildings and outdoor applications and uses fewer raw mateirals - all without compromising the performance of the light source. This project builds on Cree's existing LED platform and has the potential to quickly reduce the cost of an already highly efficient LED fixture and allowing it to compete with existing fluorescent systems. The goal is to efficiently provide warm-white light and a minimum lifetime of 50,000 hours, while reducing the cost of manufacturing the major components and assembled product.
