Silan Azure orders Veeco MOCVD reactors to ramp LED manufacturing

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that Hangzhou Silan Azure Co Ltd, one of the largest LED makers in China, has placed a multi-tool order for TurboDisc K465i metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems for its high-brightness light-emitting diode (HB-LED) manufacturing ramp in Hangzhou.

“We started the cooperation with Veeco by selecting the K465i MOCVD systems because we heard very positive feedback from the industry on the excellent system design and good performance in the field,” says Silan Azure's president Zhongyong Jiang. “Given the increased demand for LEDs in such applications as general illumination, TV backlight and outdoor displays, we intend to ramp our production quickly with the cooperation of business partners like Veeco,” he adds.

“We believe that the China market will drive significant advancement of the LED industry and Veeco, as the market-leading equipment provider in China, is well positioned to benefit from this growth,” comments Bill Miller Ph.D., executive VP, Compound Semiconductor and head of Veeco’s MOCVD operations.
