Changelight ramping up LED production with two Aixtron MOCVD systems

Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany says that, in second-quarter 2008, it shipped two AIX 2600G3 Planetary Reactor MOCVD systems to Changelight Co Ltd, based in Xiamen’s Torch Industry Park of Fujian Province, China, for large-scale manufacturing of red, orange and yellow (ROY) ultra-high-brightness LEDs.

Founded in February 2006, Changelight started mass production of red HB-LEDs after installation was completed in late 2006 for its first two AIX 2600G3 reactors (in 49x2" and 12x4" configurations). A third AIX 2600G3 system was delivered early in Q2/2007.

“We were able recently to qualify 120 mcd red LED production in record time,” says professor Wang Xiangwu, Changelight’s chief technology officer. “So we look forward to rapid installation and commissioning of the new reactors in due course.”

“We are constantly improving our technology so as to offer state-of-the-art products demanded by the marketplace,” adds founder and CEO Deng Dian Ming. “The plan is to concentrate on the ultra-high-brightness ROY LED segment with epiwafers and chip products backed up with complementary products such as light communication components and other optoelectronic products.”
