Forepi expands GaN UHB-LED production with order for multiple Aixtron systems

Taiwan’s Formosa Epitaxy (Forepi) Inc has ordered four CRIUS MOCVD systems in 31x2 inch wafer configuration from.Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany. The systems will be used to expand Forepi’s GaN-based ultra high brightness (UHB) LEDs production.

“Our previous CRIUS MOCVD tools perform so impressively in terms of device performance, stability and yield that we have returned to Aixtron for a repeat order,” said Dr Fen Ren Chien, president of Forepi. “We are now adding capacity to meet the huge increase in market demand.”

Dr Rainer Beccard, Aixtron’s marketing director, adds: “Repeat orders are amongst the best confirmation of the quality of Aixtron MOCVD tools. Moreover, this latest order comes from one of Taiwan’s leading manufacturers of UHB LEDs.”
