EnRayTek Selects Veeco Systems for Shanghai LED Factory

The Veeco TurboDisc K465i MOCVD systems will be installed at EnRayTek’s new LED factory in Shanghai, China.

Veeco Instruments has been selected as the primary supplier of Metal Organic Chemical Vapour Deposition (MOCVD) systems by EnRayTek Optoelectronics.

EnRayTek is a new company established to make LEDs for backlighting LED-TVs. During the fourth quarter of 2010, EnRayTek placed initial orders for Veeco TurboDisc K465i MOCVD systems to be installed at its new LED factory in Shanghai, China.

George Cherng, Chief Operating Officer of EnRayTek, commented, "We selected Veeco because of their excellent tool performance, MOCVD technology leadership, strong customer support, and commitment to the China marketplace. Our facility is expected to be ready to begin to receive MOCVD tools in Q2, and we believe Veeco will be the best partner to help get us up and running and making high-quality LEDs fast."

William J. Miller, Executive VP, Veeco's Compound Semiconductor Business, commented, "We are excited to win the EnRayTek business as we believe they have an excellent business plan, good financial backing and solid LED technology and personnel to meet their goal of becoming a major provider of LEDs for TV backlighting. It is our goal to help EnRayTek to ramp to production capacity quickly."

According to Jim Jenson, VP of Marketing for Veeco MOCVD, "Recent industry articles have forecasted that revenues from LED-backlit LCD-TVs are expected to exceed those of CCFL-backlit models for the first time in China during 2011. EnRayTek is focused on capitalising on this trend."
Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
