Aixtron qualified for micro-LED production at PlayNitride

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany says that Taiwan-based PlayNitride Inc has qualified its AIX G5+ C metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system for the manufacturing of gallium nitride (GaN)-based micro-LEDs, hence successfully concluding the joint collaboration agreement signed in January. At the same time (and based on the results achieved during that evaluation), PlayNitride has ordered another AIX G5+ C tool to expand its capacities for high-volume production of micro-LEDs at its new facility in Hsinchu Science Park.

Micro-LED technology is on the verge of displacing existing display technologies for next-generation consumer products, it is reckoned. Since displays made of micro-LEDs consist of micron-sized LED arrays forming individual sub-pixel elements, they offer the lowest power consumption while exhibiting superior pixel density, contrast ratio and brightness, it is claimed. Compared with existing liquid-crystal display (LCD) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technologies, micro-LEDs open up new opportunities for the design of consumer mobile products as well as premium TV displays.

“We were able to successfully qualify the AIX G5+ C by meeting the requirements for micro-LED processing,” comments PlayNitride’s CEO & chairman Dr Charles Li. “Aixtron’s advanced Planetary technology addresses these tightened micro-LED industry standards at best: excellent wavelength uniformity, high yield and high-volume manufacturing against lowest cost per wafer,” he adds.

“The qualification of our AIX G5+ C tool by PlayNitride as well as the company’s decision to expand its high-volume production capacities for micro-LEDs with another AIX G5+ C system means an important milestone for Aixtron,” says Aixtron’s president Dr Bernd Schulte. “We are looking forward to continue our partnership in the micro-LED market and we value highly our common efforts to bring this promising technology to market.”
