Cree launches brighter side-view LEDs for gaming machines

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs, which are claimed to be the brightest side-view LEDs optimized for gaming applications, delivering up to 66% higher luminous intensity than other side-view LEDs. Expand the firm's range of high-brightness LEDs optimized for indoor and outdoor video screens, displays and signage applications, the new side-view packaged LEDs are said to enable clearer image displays and higher visual impact in pachinko, slot and other video gaming machines.

The new LEDs allow simplification of design and manufacturing processes, comments Motoaki Masaki, Optoelectronic Communication Technology Development Division Head, Energy Business Office, at Japan's NAGASE & Co Ltd. "The LEDs deliver high brightness and excellent far-field pattern and color mixing in an innovative compact package that does not block the background image. Additionally, the pin configuration and size of the LEDs simplify design, providing greater control and simplifying the manufacturing process," he adds.

The QLS6A and QLS6B deliver a typical luminous intensity of 2060 and 2493 millicandela (mcd), respectively. Built on a patented package with a shallow cavity that maximizes light output and enables better color mixing, the RGB (red-green-blue) QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs feature anode and cathode pins for each color to simplify design and provide greater control.

"Everything about the new QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs, from the innovative package to the performance to the binning of the LEDs, enables our customers to more easily deliver a better product," says Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs.

Both QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs are binned full white to simplify design. The QLS6A LED shares the same design as the QLS6B with the addition of a Zener diode for improved ESD protection.

Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
