THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - July 7, 2011

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced a partnership with Cree, Molex, and RECOM to offer an all-in-one, LED lighting solution based on the Cree XLamp platform.

The Digi-Key CXA2011 XLamp LED lighting kit combines the performance, ease-of-use, and reliability of the XLamp series of LED arrays into a simple, all-in-one solution that takes the mystery out of building LED light fixtures. Digi-Key encourages LED design by offering all the necessary components, including a heat sink, connectors, power supply, and LED array, in a convenient, flexible kit.

"We are excited to partner with Cree, Molex and RECOM in offering this all-in-one LED solution," said Mark Zack, vice president, semiconductor product, Digi-Key Corporation. "We have accentuated simplicity and flexibility in this kit allowing quick demonstrations, shorter design cycles and making LED utilization more accessible."

Streamlining the process even further, Digi-Key has created a step-by-step video as part of its Another Geek Moment series on YouTube. The video details just how easy this kit is to assemble with only a screwdriver and the provided components.
