Cree XLamp XQ-A LED: Lower System Cost in Proven Ceramic XQ Pkg

The XLamp XQ-A LED brings a mid-power, cost-effective option to the proven, compact ceramic XQ package, enabling lighting manufacturers to quickly expand their product portfolio by leveraging a common XQ design. Unlike plastic mid-power LEDs, the ceramic-based XQ-A LEDs are designed to deliver the long-term calculated lifetimes of Cree’s other high-power LEDs. Available in white and color, the XQ-A LED delivers up to 89 lm at 85°C.

“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 that we know and like,’ said Matt Pinter, co-founder and lead design engineer for 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. 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. 

“At Cree, we continue to deliver innovative products that enable our customers to differentiate their products in the marketplace,” said Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. “The ceramic-based XQ-A LED family allows designers to offer high quality solutions that do not compromise lifetime or affordability.” 

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.
