Changelight boosts ROY UHB-LED ramp-up with two more Aixtron MOCVD tools

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that in fourth-quarter 2009 it received an order for two additional MOCVD tools from Changelight Co Ltd in Xiamen Torch Industry Park of Fujian Province, China. Both AIX 2600G3 IC multiwafer production systems will be shipped in second-quarter 2010.

It was just a year ago that Changelight received its first AIX 2600G3 Planetary Reactor system. Again, the new systems are to be used for large-scale manufacturing of red, orange and yellow (ROY) ultra-high-brightness (UHB) LEDs.

“The addition of a further pair of AIX 2600G3 systems will underpin the next step in our company strategy to become the leader of the Chinese optoelectronics industry,” states Changelight’s general manager professor Wang Xiang Wu, who has a decade of experience working on Planetary MOCVD reactors. “They will provide a major capacity boost for UHB ROY LED products – we are already a leader in UHB ROY LED products and now Changelight is working hard to provide the very best products for China's solid-state lighting program,” he adds.
