Epitech opts for a new CRIUS

Aixtron AG has received an order for its 30x2” wafer capacity Thomas Swan CRIUS MOCVD reactor from Epitech Technology Corporation, of Tainan, Taiwan. It will be used to mass-produce GaN based ultra-high brightness (UHB) LEDs. Shipment is due to take place in Q3/2006.

The system is one of the latest in the Thomas Swan range from Aixtron. Customers can choose the optimum configuration by wafer size, in this case 30x2-inch sapphire or silicon carbide substrates per run. The design of the system is based on Aixtron’s new ‘Integrated Concept’ (IC), which the company says optimizes uptime and reduces cost.
