Epilight orders four Aixtron CRIUS MOCVD systems for GaN HB-LED capacity increase

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says it received an order for four CRIUS 31x2 inch MOCVD tools from China’s Epilight Technology Co Ltd in Q1/2010. The tools will be used to produce GaN-based HB-LED epiwafers. Aixtron’s local support team will commission the reactors at the firm’s facility in Shanghai during Q3/2010.

Wendy Liu, chairman of Epilight, said: “We have begun a major capacity increase in our GaN high-brightness LED production so we need a corresponding guaranteed high quality production foundation. I am sure we have found this in the form of the highly respected Aixtron CRIUS MOCVD platform.

As the leader of enterprise in Shanghai’s National Solid-state Lighting Base, Epilight has become the most reliable provider of InGaN epiwafers and blue and green LED chips. Naturally, we wish to build on this hard-won reputation to meet our production commitments and are looking to attract new customers.

With our growing business we must quickly and efficiently introduce new manufacturing capacity. The CRIUS forms a key part of the start up of our Phase 5 purchase plan which is why we greatly look forward to working with the Aixtron local support team to ensure a smooth installation and ramp up.”
