EpiLEDs orders further Aixtron CRIUS reactors

Taiwanese ultra-high-brightness (UHB) LED maker EpiLEDs Technologies Inc has placed orders with Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany for four CRIUS MOCVD systems, each with 31x2 inch capacity.

EpiLEDs was formed in August 2006 as a joint-venture between DRAM silicon chip maker ProMOS Technologies and chip processing equipment maker Hermes-Epitek, both of Taiwan, to make InGaN/GaN-based LEDs on sapphire substrates. EpiLEDs subsequently ordered two Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) CRIUS MOCVD reactors in first-quarter 2007, for volume production of GaN-based high-brightness LED chips at its facility in the Tainan Science-Based Industrial Park (alongside the firm’s existing two Aixtron AIX 2600G3 HT reactors).

“We now need to expand our present capacity with more CRIUS tools,” says EpiLEDs’ president Steve Ku.
