Riber sells three MBE production reactors to Asia for RFICs

Riber S.A. of Bezons, France, which manufactures molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources and effusion cells, has sold three production systems to two Asian organizations working in compound semiconductors fields.

The orders consist of two MBE6000 systems, with a processing capacity of more than 1500 wafers per month, and one MBE49 system, with a processing capacity of 1200 wafers per month. The reactors will be used primarily to make radio-frequency communication microelectronic devices, enabling the users to significantly increase their production capabilities.

Riber says that the orders illustrate the strong upturn in the compound semiconductor industry, as well as the strong level of interest in the firm’s production systems. Since the start of 2010, Riber has booked five orders for production reactors for delivery in Europe and Asia.

The firm says that the latest commercial orders confirm the growth in its sales in emerging countries, as well as highlighting its key position in the Asian market.
