Highlink boosts GaN HB-LED capacity

Taiwan-based Highlink Technology Corporation, which was founded in 2000 and makes GaN-based high-brightness LEDs for advanced lighting, ordered two AIX 2800G4HT 42x2-inch MOCVD Planetary Reactors in Q1/2006 (expected to ship in Q3/2006).

The new machines, which are the latest and largest capacity on offer by Aixtron, will be used for high-volume production of epiwafer products.

Besides the increased wafer capacity, the new systems feature optimized thermal conditions and an improved gas inlet, both improving yield and uniformity significantly.

“The build-up in customer demand means that we now require a major increase in production capacity,” said Highlink’s president Gary Yu.
