Aixtron receives supplier award from onsemi

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany has received a supplier award from onsemi of Scottsdale, AZ, USA. With its new G10-SiC chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and customer service on-site, Aixtron is supporting the production ramp-up of onsemi’s facility in Bucheon, South Korea, which was achieved in record time. With a production capacity of more than 1 million 200mm SiC wafers per year, the facility is one of the world’s largest silicon carbide (SiC) fabs. At the inaugural event of the new S5 production line, Aixtron was among the suppliers receiving this award.

At the new site, onsemi operates multiple new G10-SiC systems, and both companies worked together to not only install the new tools but also achieve major productivity improvements on-site: Together, the teams have improved tool operation and optimized maintenance procedures, all enabling a major increase in uptime and wafers output. The speed of the on-site support plus the collaboration on data analysis resulted in further tool performance enhancements.

“Thanks to the close cooperation with Aixtron, we were able to improve the already very high level of productivity of the installed base,” says onsemi. “The Aixtron team offered great on-site support and training and helped to optimize our operating and maintenance processes. With their mindset of only being satisfied if the tool is achieving the highest productivity, the service team really made the difference,” the firm comments.

“A strong and trustworthy relationship with our customers is an essential element of our success,” believes Aixtron’s CEO & president Dr Felix Grawert. “To obtain a strong and sustainable market position, technology leadership always has to be matched with excellent customer support,” he adds. “We have worked hard to build what is likely today the largest SiC expert and service network worldwide to support our customers in their rapid production ramp-ups.”
