Yangzhou Zhongke orders two Aixtron CRIUS systems to ramp GaN-based HB-LED production

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that in Q4/2009 it received an order for two CRIUS MOCVD systems (in 31x2-inch wafer configuration) from China’s Yangzhou Zhongke Semiconductor Lighting Center Co Ltd. The systems will be delivered to Yangzhou Zhongke’s ISCAS research group in Q2/2010, where they will be used to produce GaN-based HB-LEDs for streetlighting and display backlighting.

“Our reason for purchase was an outstanding need for capacity increase. Up to now our research group, ISCAS, has been using our first Aixtron system and they are very satisfied with the system's all round performance. Now, however, we need a new capability that gives us high throughput but with lower cost and easy operation. We are convinced that we will get all these features and more from the world-class CRIUS MOCVD reactors supplied by Aixtron. Backed up by their excellent service and support they will give us the complete package,” said Dr Wang GuoHong, general manager at Yangzhou Zhongke Semiconductor Lighting Center Co Ltd.
