Veeco ships 200th TurboDisc K465i MOCVD system

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that it has shipped its 200th TurboDisc K465i metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system to a “leading LED manufacturer located in Asia”.

“Since its introduction to the market in January 2010, the K465i has become the market-leading MOCVD system for high-volume manufacturing of LEDs,” reckons Bill Miller Ph.D., executive VP, Compound Semiconductor and head of Veeco’s MOCVD operations. “We are proud of Veeco’s ability to ramp production of the K465i and support our global customers to meet the strong demand for tools as LED adoption accelerates for backlighting and lighting applications,” he adds. “This is a significant milestone for our business.”

Veeco says that the production-proven K465i extends its lead in capital efficiency (the number of good wafers per day for each capital dollar) for high-volume LED makers. The K465i provides ease-of-tuning for fast process optimization on wafer sizes up to 8 inches and fast tool recovery time after maintenance, the firm adds.
