Philips Lumileds orders additional Aixtron AIX G5 HT system

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that Philips Lumileds Lighting Company has ordered an additional Aixtron G5 HT MOCVD reactor for the production of its LUXEON power LEDs.

“The G5 system’s fully automated operations through integrated wafer handling make this new MOCVD system platform very attractive for us and is one of the reasons we are adding another G5 system at our San Jose facility,” says Mike Pugh, chief procurement officer at Philips Lumileds.

Dr Rainer Beccard, Aixtron’s VP Marketing, added: “With the introduction of our new innovative technologies in our Next Generation Platform, the AIX G5 HT, we provide a new system to our customers that enables more than the doubling of productivity compared to the previous MOCVD generation. We are delighted that an industry leader such as Philips Lumileds has chosen this system and we are looking forward to closely work with the excellent team of Philips Lumileds in San Jose to ensure a quick and successful qualification of the product."
