Cree claims industry’s brightest side-view LEDs

October 03, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Aimed at gaming machines, Cree's QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs deliver up to 66 percent higher luminous intensity than other side-view LEDs, says the company.

The side-view packaged LEDs enable clearer image displays for a better gaming experience, with a typical luminous intensity of 2060 and 2493mcd, respectively. Built on a patented package, with a shallow cavity that maximizes light output and enables better color mixing, the RGB (red-green-blue) QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs feature anode and cathode pins for each color to simplify design and provide greater control. Both QLS6A and QLS6B LEDs are binned full white to simplify design. The QLS6A LED shares the same design as the QLS6B with the addition of a Zener diode for improved ESD protection. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
