Cree introduces XLamp XQ LEDs, delivering breakthrough size and light distribution

Cree has announced the availability of a new product family, XLamp® XQ LEDs, featuring a unique combination of small size, novel light distribution and high-reliability design. This combination of features enables the next generation of designs for applications that require broader light distribution such as omni-directional lamps and fixtures.

The XQ LEDs are Cree’s smallest lighting-class LEDs at just 1.6 mm x 1.6 mm, 57 percent smaller than Cree’s XLamp XB package. Built on Cree’s revolutionary SC3 Technology™ Platform, the ceramic-based XQ LEDs are designed to deliver the long-term calculated lifetimes of Cree’s other high-power LEDs, such as the high performing XP or XT LEDs. The XQ LED’s new light-emission pattern directs more light towards the edge rather than the centre of the package. Compared to existing LEDs, XQ LEDs allow the use of fewer packages to achieve a wide, distributed light pattern. Together, these innovations can enable manufacturers to increase the light output, expected lifetime and omni-directionality of their designs.

“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.”

“Once again, Cree is creating innovative solutions to allow our customers to differentiate their products,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “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.”

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

Cree® XLamp XQ LED samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Visit www.cree.com/xq to learn more about Cree’s latest innovation.
