Cree introduces XLamp XQ LEDs

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced XLamp XQ LEDs. The XQ LEDs are Cree’s smallest lighting-class LEDs at 1.6mm x 1.6mm, 57% smaller than Cree’s XLamp XB package.

Built on Cree’s SC3 Technology Platform, the ceramic-based XQ LEDs are designed to deliver the long-term calculated lifetimes of Cree’s other high-power LEDs. The XQ LED’s new light-emission pattern directs more light towards the edge rather than the center of the package, says the firm.

“The high reliability of the ceramic-based XQ-B LED allows us to offer a high-quality solution that does not compromise on lifetime,” says Martin Hockemeyer, vice-chairman of the board of TELEFUNKEN Licht AG. “The unique optical advantage of the XQ-B gives us the opportunity to create the brilliant look that our customers are looking for.”

“Unlike other mid-power packages, the XQ LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to meet their light-distribution requirements using fewer LEDs, without giving up the performance or reliability that they expect from Cree’s lighting-class LEDs,” says Paul Thieken, Cree’s director of marketing, LED components.

The XQ family includes two new LEDs, the XQ-B and the XQ-D. In cool white (5000K), the XQ-B LED delivers up 160 lumens-per-watt at 0.18W, and the XQ-D LED delivers up to 130 lumens-per-watt at 1W. Both LEDs are available in 2700K to 6500K color temperatures with minimum 80 CRI option.

Cree XLamp XQ LED samples are available now.
