Semi-Photonics begins transition to 4 inch GaN with Aixtron AIX 2800G4 HT system

Taiwan’s Semi-Photonics Co Ltd (a subsidiary of SemiLEDs Corporation) ordered an Aixtron AIX 2800G4 HT production MOCVD system in 11x4 inch wafer configuration in Q2/2008, for delivery by the end of this year. Semi-Photonics will use the system to begin its transition from 2-inch to 4-inch wafers for SemiLEDs’ new 4-inch UHB GaN-based LED line.

“We are making a key transition in our production platform and Aixtron will once again be playing a crucial role in ensuring a smooth transition,” said Dr Chuong Tran, president of SemiLEDs. “We expect the new 4-inch production platform to bring a dramatic increase in our LED manufacturing capability and productivity.“

SemiLEDs manufactures LEDs for applications such as: signage, communication, automotive and general lighting.
