Cree adds XQ-A to XQ LED family to deliver lower system cost

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has expanded its portfolio of lighting-class LEDs with the addition of the XLamp XQ-A LED to the XQ LED family.

The compact, ceramic-based XQ-A enables lighting manufacturers to quickly and cost-effectively expand their product portfolios by leveraging an LED design that is similar to that of the proven and reliable XQ-E, says Cree. With a broad range of color options and optical symmetry, the XQ-A is claimed to be the smallest LED building block available for designs that use white and color LEDs.

"The introduction of the XQ-A LED gives us more options to increase the capability of our machine-vision and industrial LED lights using the same compact XQ package," comments Matt Pinter, co-founder & lead design engineer of machine-vision firm Smart Vision Lights. "Unlike mid-power color LEDs, the compact, ceramic-based XQ-A LED will allow us to put two, three or even four LEDs under our new silicone lens technology where we could only use one LED before. This generates more light for industrial applications without compromising lifetime."

The ceramic XQ-A LED delivers lighting-class reliability, quality and long-life performance comparable to Cree's other ceramic high-power LEDs such as the high-performing XP and XT, says Cree. The new LEDs leverage the proven XQ platform to provide optical symmetry, consistency across all colors and tiny 1.6mm footprint to improve color mixing and simplify the production process for lighting manufacturers.

"The ceramic-based XQ-A LED family allows designers to offer high-quality solutions that do not compromise lifetime or affordability," says Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs. 

The XQ-A delivers up to 89 lumens and is characterized at 85°C. It is available in white color temperatures ranging from 2700K to 6200K and CRI options of 70, 80 and 90. The LED is also available in red, red-orange, PC amber, green, blue and royal blue.

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