PlayNitride prepares high-volume manufacturing of MicroLEDs with follow-up order of AIX G5+ C
Aixtron SE has announced that PlayNitride has qualified its AIX G5+ C MOCVD system for the manufacturing of GaN-based MicroLEDs, concluding the collaboration agreement signed in January. At the same time, PlayNitride has ordered another AIX G5+ C tool to expand its capacities for high-volume production of MicroLEDs.
Charles Li, CEO & Chairman at PlayNitride, says: “We are pleased that we were able to successfully qualify the AIX G5+ C by meeting the requirements for MicroLED processing. Aixtron’s advanced Planetary technology addresses these tightened MicroLED industry standards at best: excellent wavelength uniformity, high yield and high-volume manufacturing against lowest cost per wafer.”
“The qualification of our AIX G5+ C tool by PlayNitride as well as the company’s decision to expand its high-volume production capacities for MicroLEDs with another AIX G5+ C system means an important milestone for Aixtron. We are looking forward to continue our partnership in the MicroLED market and we value highly our common efforts to bring this promising technology to market”, comments Bernd Schulte, president of Aixtron.
