Epistar qualifies Veeco’s MaxBright MOCVD system for high-volume production

Epitaxial deposition, process, and metrology equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview NY, USA says that Epistar Corp of Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park  (Taiwan’s biggest LED chip maker) has qualified its TurboDisc MaxBright multi-reactor gallium nitride (GaN) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system for high-volume production of high-brightness light-emitting diodes (HB-LEDs).

“Veeco’s MaxBright Multi-Chamber System enables us to ramp production quickly on the industry's most productive platform,” comments Epistar’s president Ming Jiunn Jou PhD. “We will continue to rely on Veeco for technological innovation and process expertise as a strong strategic partner. Veeco’s commitment to providing best-in-class MOCVD equipment, as well as enhanced local support with their new technology center in Hsinchu, will help Epistar to achieve our future expansion goals and success,” he believes. 

“The MaxBright system is the ideal solution for the lowest cost-of-ownership LED production, and we are pleased that Epistar, a clear leader in high-quality LED manufacturing, has adopted the MaxBright for their production ramp,” comments William J. Miller PhD, Veeco’s executive VP, LED & Solar. “Our long-standing partnership is a key factor in the mass adoption of LEDs for general lighting.” 

The MaxBright system is reckoned to be the industry’s most productive, lowest-cost-of-ownership MOCVD system available for manufacturing HB-LEDs. Available in a 2- or 4-reactor cluster architecture, the system delivers a productivity gain of up to 500% and a 2.5x increase in footprint efficiency over the firm’s K465i system, Veeco adds.
