Silan expands blue and green HB-LED capacity with Veeco MOCVD tools

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that China-based LED maker Hangzhou Silan Azure Co Ltd has placed a multi-tool order for more TurboDisc K465i metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems. The equipment will be used to expand Silan Azure’s manufacturing capacity for blue and green high-brightness light-emitting diodes (HB-LEDs).

A joint venture of Silan Microelectronics Co Ltd, Silan Azure designs, manufactures and distributes HB-LEDs, epitaxial wafers and chips.

“The growth we are experiencing supplying LEDs for general illumination, backlighting and outdoor display applications required us to add manufacturing capacity at our Hangzhou facility,” says Silan Azure’s president Zhongyong Jiang. “After evaluating various suppliers, we chose to purchase additional systems from Veeco because of our satisfaction with the production-worthiness and reliability of existing K465i MOCVD tools [ordered in October 2010] at our fab. The excellent field support we have received from Veeco was also a major factor in our decision,” he adds.

“We are pleased Silan Azure has chosen the K465i for their manufacturing expansion, and look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship with one of China’s top LED manufacturers,” says William Miller, Ph.D., executive VP of Veeco Process Equipment.
