VPEC orders Aixtron AIX 2600G3 MOCVD systems

Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany says that Visual Photonics Epitaxy Corporation (VPEC) has placed a repeat order for its AIX 2600G3 MOCVD systems, and that they will be used for the production of PHEMT and HBT epiwafers. The new reactors will be installed alongside existing Aixtron systems at VPEC's production facility in Ping-Jen City, Taoyuan, Taiwan.

Founded in 1996, VPEC's principal products are HBT and PHEMT epitaxial wafers for wireless communication applications, high brightness LED epitaxial wafers and chips for various industrial and commercial applications as well as Zn diffusion ready PIN epitaxial wafers for optical fiber communication applications.

Dr James Huang, general manager of VPEC's Microelectronic Products Business Unit, said: “In order to meet booming demand from our customers we are expanding our production capacity for high performance transistor wafers. We have therefore once again returned to Aixtron and placed a repeat order for the excellent AIX 2600G3 epitaxy reactors.”
