Next-Gen Lighting-Class LEDs Reduce Luminaire Size

Nov. 21, 2013
Cree, Inc. introduces 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 XLamp® XQ-E LED family from Cree Inc. enables  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.

The new XQ-E LEDs have a tiny 1.6mm x 1.6mm footprint and are available in both white and color configurations. The XQ-E's combination of optical symmetry, consistent design across all configurations and its small size enables improved color 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," said 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 characterized at 85°C, the XQ-E White LED is available in 2700K to 6200K color temperatures and offers minimum CRI options of 70 and 80. The XQ-E White LED delivers up to 287 lumens at 3W, 85°C. XQ-E Color LEDs are available in red, green and blue.

Cree® XLamp XQ-E White LED samples are available now and color LED samples were available in late October. Production quantities are available with standard lead times.
