Cree XLamp® XQ-B LEDs
Cree XLamp® XQ-B LEDs revolutionize mid-power LEDs by delivering lighting-class reliability and a wider spread of light than typical plastic packages. Built on Cree's revolutionary SC3 Technology Platform, the XLamp XQ-B LEDs deliver the unique combination of small size, reliability, and novel light distribution. This combination of features enables the next generation of designs for applications that require broader light distribution, such as omni-directional lamps and fixtures. The XQ-B's innovative wide light emission enables a smooth look in replacement tubes and panel lights while reducing system cost by using fewer LEDs. Using Cree's newest generation of silicon carbide-based LED chips, XQ-B is optimized to dramatically lower system cost in non-directional and outdoor area lighting applications.
At just 1.6 x 1.6mm, the XQ LEDs are Cree's smallest lighting-class LEDs. The ceramic-based XQ LEDs deliver reliability comparable to Cree's other ceramic high-power LEDs, such as the high-performing XP or XT LEDs. The XQ LED also features a breakthrough light-emission pattern where more light is directed towards the edge rather than the center of the LED. Compared to standard LEDs, XQ LEDs allow the use of fewer LEDs to achieve a wide, distributed light pattern.
