FOREPI orders multiple Veeco MaxBright MOCVD systems

Epitaxial deposition, process, and metrology equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview NY, USA says that Taiwan-based Formosa Epitaxy Inc (FOREPI) and its affiliate Jiangsu Canyang Corp of Jiangsu province, China have placed a multi-unit order for TurboDisc MaxBright multi-reactor gallium nitride (GaN) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems (launched in February) for the production of high-brightness light-emitting diodes (HB LEDs).

“We are impressed with MaxBright’s high-productivity, flexible process capabilities, and compact architecture, and think it will be a great choice for our high-production fabs,” says Jiangsu Canyang president Frank Chien Ph.D. “We have selected the four-chamber configuration as we believe it will provide the best cost of ownership and value for our investment,” he adds.

“It is exciting to have our new tool selected by one of Taiwan’s top LED manufacturers as part of their expansion in both Taiwan and China,” says William J. Miller Ph.D., executive VP, Veeco LED & Solar. 

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 K465i system, Veeco adds.
