Changelight orders Aixtron MOCVD reactors for AlGaInP ROY LED expansion

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany has announced a new order from Changelight Co Ltd for MOCVD reactors, comprising several AIX 2600G3 IC systems in a 49x2”-wafer configuration and a double-digit number of AIX 2800G4-R systems in 60x2”-wafer configuration. After delivery between fourth-quarter 2010 and second-quarter of 2011, the Aixtron China support team will install and commission the new reactors in Changelight’s epitaxy facility at its mainland China production plant, after which they will be used for red-orange-yellow (ROY) high-brightness LED production.

“Since 2006, we have been exclusively working with Aixtron,” says Changelight’s general manager professor Xiang Wu Wang. “Consequently, it was a straightforward decision choosing their systems when assessing the best solution to carry out our planned increase in production capacity,” he adds. “This time it will be the combination of the AIX 2800G4-R and AIX 2600G3 IC systems. These will give us good economics through very low source material cost overhead. The G4 systems will provide the desired high throughput for our ROY LED requirements.”

Changelight’s quaternary alloy AlGaInP LED epitaxial wafers and chips are said to be comparable to the best from the leading domestic manufacturers in terms of scale, output and sales, with wide applications in digital, dot matrix, full-color screen displays as well as traffic lights.

“Changelight plans to reach the number-one position amongst mainland China GaAs LED companies, and longer-term we want to achieve success in overseas markets,” states Wang. “The new reactors, coupled with the high-quality Aixtron support service, will ensure that we reach our targets according to plan,” he reckons.
