Cree Big Performance XQ-E LEDs Come In Small Packages

The firm's latest SiC (silicon carbide) - based LEDs follow on from the XQ series launched in May and are 78 percent smaller than Cree's XP-E2 modules
Cree is introducing the new XLamp XQ-E LED family, enabling lighting manufacturers to significantly reduce the size and total cost of their LED luminaires without sacrificing light output, efficacy or reliability.

The new, game-changing LED packs the lighting-class performance of the XP-E2 into a package that is 78 percent smaller. The XQ-E LED family opens up new design possibilities for a wide spectrum of lighting applications, such as portable, indoor directional, architectural and vehicle lighting.


“Cree's new XQ-E LEDs are changing the way we view LEDs. No other LED manufacturer offers an LED of this small size with such a high level of performance," says Luke Thorkildsen, director of lighting division, The Coleman Company, Inc. “We’re excited about the new possibilities for smaller, lighter or brighter designs enabled by the new XQ-E LED."


The new XQ-E LEDs have a tiny 1.6 mm x 1.6 mm footprint and are available in both white and colour configurations. The XQ-E’s combination of optical symmetry, consistent design across all configurations and its small size enables improved colour mixing and optical control compared to the larger XP-E2 LED.


“Previously, the size of LEDs dictated the form factor of the luminaire and lighting manufacturers had to design around the light source," explains Paul Thieken, director of LED Components, Cree. “With its unparalleled performance and size, the XQ-E LED redefines what’s possible with lighting designs, enabling new form factors and eliminating constraints."


Built on Cree’s revolutionary SC3 Technology Platform and characterised at 85°C, the XQ-E White LED is available in 2700-K to 6200-K colour temperatures and offers minimum CRI options of 70 and 80. The XQ-E White LED delivers up to 287 lumens at 3 W, 85°C. XQ-E Colour LEDs are available in red, green and blue.


Cree XLamp XQ-E White LED samples are available now, and colour LED samples will be available in late October. Production quantities are available with standard lead times.


 


 




AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
