Cree Introduces High Intensity Colour LEDs

New XLamp XQ-E offers high performance and small size

Cree has introduced XLamp XQ-E High Intensity LEDs, claimed to be the first family of colour LEDs optimised for optical performance. This drop-in upgrade for XQ-E High Density designs enables lighting manufacturers to double the candela performance with minimal redesign. 

The new LEDs are said to use XQ-E's proven optical symmetry and consistency across all colours to improve colour mixing and simplify the production process for lighting manufacturers. Built on Cree's SC5 technology, the new high intensity LEDs are thought to be the smallest building block available for colour LED designs allowing lighting manufacturers to quickly boost performance and reduce size for directional applications such as track and architectural lighting.

 "Cree continues to drive innovation within the solid state lighting market by truly listening to the customer and providing solutions like the XQ-E High Intensity LED. At Lumenpulse, candela is the name of the game, and we want to put as much light as possible on the surface we are illuminating, as efficiently as possible," said Greg Campbell, senior VP and CTO at Lumenpulse. "The XQ-E High Intensity is a perfect tool in our toolkit to maximise candela output for our innovative products."

Available in white, red, red-orange, PC amber, green, blue and royal blue, the XQ-E High Intensity LED features Cree's new primary optic design that reduces optical source size by more than 50 percent to deliver optical control.

"We are excited that Cree is extending its high intensity class of performance to the XQ family," said Antonio Di Gangi, CEO, DGA. "The combination of high lumen output, innovative primary optic and the tiny footprint of the XQ-E High Intensity LEDs enables us to create compact luminaires that deliver a lot of punch."

The XQ-E High Intensity white is available in colour temperatures ranging from 2700K to 6200K and CRI options of 70, 80 and 90. 



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.
