Product Information

The High Brightness SMD single-color LEDs set the standard for luminous intensity and dependability in LED video screens, monochromatic information displays, and signal and architectural lighting. These LEDs come in an extensive palette of colors, various package designs, and multiple beam angles, providing customizable options for diverse application demands.

In addition to supplying CREE LED HB SMD LEDs, Marktech has decades of experience designing and manufacturing LED assemblies for information displays, scoreboards, roadway signs, and architectural lighting applications. Marktech also packages CREE LED chips in hermetic TO-can, hermetic SMD, custom, and chip-on-board (COB) packaging for analytical, medical, prototyping projects, and specialty applications.

Cree’s surface mount (SMD) LEDs are engineered for industry-standard packaging, delivering robust, high-brightness output. They are capable of withstanding varied environmental conditions and are ideally suited for a myriad of lighting applications. The broad viewing angle of these LEDs is ideal for channel letters, general backlighting, and illumination tasks. Their design, featuring a flat-top emitting surface, ensures seamless integration with light pipes. With options that include flat or domed lenses, viewing angles ranging from 60 to 120 degrees, and many colors and brightness levels, these SMD LEDs offer versatility and high performance for lighting designs.

CREE LED has an extensive selection of SMD LED emitters with various specifications to suit different lighting needs. CREE LED has single-color, multi-color, and white SMD LED. The range of colors includes amber, blue, cyan, green, orange, red, RGB (Red-Green-Blue), RGBW (Red-Green-Blue-White), and warm and cool white variants. Dominant Wavelengths (DWL) span from 470nm (blue) to 624nm (red), indicating the color’s peak emission. The Color Rendering Index (CRI) values provided, specifically for white LEDs, range from 70 to 80, ensuring color accuracy. Luminous intensity is a critical parameter here, with a minimum range from as low as 190 mcd (millicandela) to as high as 50,000 mcd, indicating the brightness level of the LEDs. These intensity values are instrumental in applications where visibility or high brightness is crucial.

The Forward Voltage (V) indicates the energy needed to drive the LEDs. Most operate at standard values between 2.0V and 4.0V, aligning with common power supplies. Viewing angles vary widely, from a focused 30° to a broad 120°, essential for applications requiring different light dispersion levels.


The advanced features and specifications of the CREE LED SMD LEDs provide versatility for various applications requiring varied brightness, color fidelity, and low energy consumption levels. The diverse viewing angle range suggests suitability for different light diffusion needs, from focused beams to widespread illumination applications.


In each of these applications, CREE LED through-hole LED emitters bring specific benefits such as enhanced performance, improved lifespan, energy efficiency, and superior brightness and color quality, which are crucial for the effectiveness and reliability of lighting solutions in diverse environments.

CREE LED’s Latest High Brightness SMD LEDs

CREE LED has expanded its product line by introducing three new surface mount diode (SMD) LEDs engineered explicitly for use in large-format, high-resolution video screens. These SMD LEDs are designed to deliver superior image quality and reliability for applications such as stadium signs, airport displays, command center displays, and full-color roadway signs.

The CV94A-FGC is a 3-in-1 RGB LED from the CV94 LED family. It features an oval beam angle of 90°/45°, making it suitable for outdoor applications with larger-pixel pitches like roadway signs and LED billboards. This SMD LED allows signage manufacturers to replace multiple through-hole LEDs with a single SMD, simplifying assembly and enhancing image quality while reducing costs.

Secondly, the CLMWB-FKC is another RGB SMD LED with high brightness and a wide viewing angle in a compact 1.6 x 1.7 mm size. It is ideal for high-resolution outdoor LED video screens used in stadiums and for advertising purposes. The CV94A-FGC and CLMWB-FKC models have an IPx8 waterproof rating and UV inhibitors, which boost their reliability and performance in extreme weather conditions.

Lastly, the UHD111A-FKA is an RGB SMD LED that stands out for its industry-leading brightness and reliability, packaged into a small 1.0 x 1.0 mm footprint. This LED is optimized for high-resolution indoor displays in airports, shopping malls, and command centers. A distinctive feature of the UHD111A-FKA is the absence of wire bonds, which enhances black levels and contrast ratios, a notable improvement over similar LEDs.

These introductions by Cree LED demonstrate a commitment to innovative, high-quality display solutions across various environments and applications.
