Introducing Solderless LED Socket, Type CM Tyco Electronics’ Solderless LED Socket, Type CM provides a solderless quick termination to the 1500 lumen output Cree XLamp® MP-L™ LED. This solderless termination technique facilitates easy integration of the LED into the end customer’s lighting fixtures with simple screw-down installation. Multiple versions are offered to provide application flexibility. To further enhance functionality to the fixture manufacturer, the socket also features integral, robust, snap attachment of LEDIL Tyra series reflector optics. KEY FEATURES • Solderless termination to the Cree XLamp MP-L LED • Fast, rapid termination and assembly – eliminates hand soldering wires to the MPL 0.70mm x 0.85mm pads • Offered in separable board termination and wire termination versions • Snap-on optics assembly using LEDIL’s Tyra series reflector optics *Cree and XLamp are registrations and MP-L is a trademark of Cree, Inc.

If yes, what is the application and how is the customer terminating to the pads on the top of the Cree XLamp MP-L LED? The Solderless LED Socket Type CM offers a solderless termination to the pads on the top of the socket and offers an ideal alternative to hand soldering wires onto very small pads spaced on 1.25 mm centerlines. How do I decide which socket to use? This is entirely dependent on the customers application. In such instances where the Cree XLamp MP-L LED is mounted to a circuit board, it often makes sense for the customer to also mount driver circuitry onto the same circuit board. The board mount socket can then be used to connect the Cree XLamp MP-L LED to the PCB and thereby to the driver circuitry on the board. Another remote connector (AMP Mini CT, micro MATE-N-LOK, HPI connectors or the like) is then used to provide power to the board. The Cree XLamp MP-L LED can also be thermally epoxied directly to a heat sink. If this is the avenue the customer is using, then one of the wire mount versions is best. The inverted wire version can be used where the customer has the option to allow for connector access within the heat sink and offers the most compact installation option. In instances where the customer has room or can not provide connector access within the heat sink, the horizontal wire mount is used since it allows easy access to the connection from the LED side of the assembly. The Cree XLamp MP-L LED employs three parallel strings of LEDs and therefore requires three circuits hence the need for 6 connections. Each LED circuit is nominally 25VDC at 150mA which is well within the 50VDC voltage rating of the AMP Mini CT connector. Can the customer serially connect the three strings at 75VDC rather than run them in parallel? This is not recommended since the resulting 75VDC drop across the LED exceeds the 50VDC rating of the AMP Mini CT connector. Is special application tooling required? Not typically although when thermally epoxying the Cree XLamp MP-L LED directly to the heat sink, a fixture is recommended to ensure the LED is properly located to the socket mounting holes in the heat sink. Do I need to epoxy the Cree XLamp MP-L LED to the heat sink or can I just use thermal grease or solid thermal pad as the interface material? TE does not recommend thermal grease or thermal pads with the SolderlessLED Socket, Type CM as the socket is not designed to provide the normal force to the grease/pad required for optimal thermal performance.
