Smt smd cree high power XPEPHR led mounting to heat sink

by paulryan1964 on Tue Aug 05, 2014 1:56 pm

Hi
I purchased some CREE 1 w led smd smt mounting leds and would like to mount/solder them to a heat sink 'star' type holder. The leds do not have the little solder arms on the ends so i was wondering how to attach them electrically and thermally so that i can use them . Does anyone know of empty board or star heat sink like thing i would use? Maybe i am not using correct keywords for sesrching for these things?

If you google "Cree star heatsink" you will get a some relevant hits. Looks like the stars are available from Mouser and there is a video showing how to reflow solder them.
