XLamp® XQ-E LEDs

May 18, 2023

Higher max current & more color options for Cree LED’s smallest XLamp package

The XLamp® XQ-E LEDs are available in two versions: high density and high intensity. The XQ-E High Density LED enables lighting manufacturers to significantly reduce the size and total cost of their LED luminaires versus similar performance 3.5-mm footprint LEDs, without sacrificing lumen output, efficacy or reliability. The XQ-E High Intensity LED uses an innovative primary optic design optimized to deliver maximum candela, especially through narrow-beam secondary optics. The XQ-E’s combination of optical symmetry, consistent design across all configurations and tiny 1.6 mm X 1.6 mm footprint simplifies manufacturing and design while providing excellent color mixing.
