Aixtron delivers another nitride MOCVD reactor to LED maker Showa Denko

Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany says that, in third-quarter 2008, it delivered an AIX 2800G4 HT Planetary Reactor MOCVD system (its flagship product for large-scale GaN-based LED manufacturing) to Japan-based ultra-high-brightness (UHB) LED manufacturer Showa Denko K.K. Ordered in first-quarter 2008, the system is configured in 11x4-inch wafer configuration.

“Our existing AIX 2800G4HT Planetary Reactor system has been serving us very well and now we are ready to further scale up production, as announced last year,” says a spokesman for Showa Denko. “With the additional system, we will continue to achieve all our production targets.”
