Jiangsu Canyang to boost blue HB-LED capacity with Aixtron CRIUS II reactors

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany says that in second-quarter 2011 it received an order for four CRIUS II MOCVD systems in 55x2”-wafer configuration from China’s Jiangsu Canyang Optoelectronics Ltd, a joint venture with Taiwan-based LED chipmaker Formosa Epitaxy Inc (FOREPI). The firm is seeking a smooth process transfer from their existing CRIUS metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) reactors to Aixtron’s new-generation platform.

After delivery between the second and fourth quarters of 2011, one of Aixtron’s local support teams will install and commission the reactor in the Jiangsu Canyang’s production complex in China. All systems will be dedicated to the growth of blue high-brightness LEDs.

“We are embarking on a whole new era of high-volume blue LED production at Jiangsu Canyang,” says FOREPI president Dr Fen-Ren Chien. “To minimize risk and interruptions we have once again chosen Aixtron equipment. The outstanding performance of our existing CRIUS and G4 systems as well as the excellent design concept of the Showerhead technology I am confident will give us the proven fastest time-to-market,” he comments. “While these will be Jiangsu Canyang’s first CRIUS II systems, I am convinced that the new systems will demonstrate the expected results as well as easy production process handling and excellent compatibility,” Chien continues.

Jiangsu Canyang Optoelectronics Ltd specializes in R&D and industrialization of LED epitaxial wafers and chips. Its core business covers the production of ultra-high-brightness InGaN LED epiwafers and LED chips, and its capacity is expected to reach 50 MOCVD systems within the next two years. In April 2010, the firm placed a multi-tool order for Aixtron Planetary and Showerhead HB-GaN LED MOCVD systems.
