Changelight steps-up to mass production of red LEDs with Aixtron AIX 2600G3 systems

Founded in February 2006, maker of HB-LEDs Changelight Co Ltd of Xiamen, China commenced mass production of red LEDs using its new Aixtron AIX 2600G3 multiwafer MOCVD Planetary Reactors only two weeks after installation was completed. A third AIX 2600G3 system has also just been installed.

The first two systems (in 49x2" and 12x4" configuration) were delivered and installed late in 2006. The third system was delivered early in Q2/2007.

Deng Dian Ming, Changelight’s president, said: “Changelight managed to ramp up full LED manufacturing within less than one year from its foundation. This impressive result is also based on the excellent support provided by Aixtron supplying the key technology. We look forward to a further expansion of our capacity for LEDs with the third MOCVD system which is now ready for operation within such a short time.”

Professor Wang Xiangwu, VP technology at Changelight, added: "We have been very impressed with the rapid installation and commissioning of our first two MOCVD tools. Only two weeks after installation we took over the reactors and start the mass production of red LEDs with yielding 120 mcd. This is already a commercial quality product within our target specification."
