Sanan Opto expands LED production with Aixtron tools
Buys multiple AIX 2800G4-TM cluster systems to meet demand for red, orange and yellow LEDs
Deposition equipment firm Aixtron will supply multiple AIX 2800G4-TM (IC2) cluster systems to Sanan Optoelectronics, supporting the Chinese chipmaker’s long-term plan to address the rising market demand for Fine Pitch Displays which requires a capacity increase in red, orange and yellow LEDs (ROY LEDs).
All the AIX 2800G4-TM (IC2) tools will feature a configuration of 15x4 inches and are scheduled for shipment between Q4/2018 and Q2/2019.
Aixtron's automated Planetary Reactor platform has been established as the tool of reference for arsenide-phosphide-based ROY LEDs due to its production performance and high manufacturing capacity that enables maximum yield at the highest quality level. Globally, the AIX 2800G4-TM forms the production backbone of numerous leading photonics manufacturers.
Simon Lin, general manager of Sanan Optoelectronics, says: "Due to our longstanding cooperation, we are familiar with Aixtron’s equipment technology. With respect to our long-term expansion plans for our LED business, we have a great deal of confidence in the outstanding quality of the latest AIX 2800G4-TM model which has proven to be the best system currently available on the market. Characterised by wafer homogeneity and efficiency in material consumption in combination with maximum flexibility and versatility in production, the AIX 2800G4-TM enables us to meet the demanding requirements of our customers."
"We are pleased that Sanan has once again selected our highly reliable AIX 2800G4-TM system for its capacity expansion. Looking forward to the continuation of our long-standing collaboration with one of the global leading LED manufacturers, we will enable Sanan to quickly commission the supplied systems for high-volume production," comments Bernd Schulte, president of Aixtron.
