Cree, Inc. has introduced the LED driver Compatibility Program for its LED products. The new Driver Compatibility Program provides LED lighting manufacturers with a list of drivers that are compatible with Cree LED modules, as verified through evaluation and testing by Cree.
This program allows Cree to extend its LED module warranty to the use of Cree’s LED module with a compatible third-party LED driver. Cree’s LED modules warranty was previously limited to the use of a Cree LED module with a Cree driver.
“Cree’s Driver Compatibility Program is yet another way Cree drives LED adoption, enabling everyone to win in the LED revolution,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior director marketing, LED components. “For driver manufacturers, the program provides access to Cree’s customers and products, expanding their market and enabling them to better serve lighting manufacturers. For lighting manufacturers, the program provides greater design flexibility and enables a shorter design cycle to get products to market faster.”
Cree kicks off the Driver Compatibility Program with a range of compatible drivers for the LMH2 LED Module and plans to extend to other LED products later this year; program details can be found at www.cree.com/dcp.
