NEDI to develop power devices and LEDs with Aixtron tools
The Chinese firm will use one of the two reactors to produce 4” arsenide and phosphide based LED materials and the other to produce 4” silicon carbide based epiwafers.
Aixtron SE has announced that Nanjing Electronic Devices Institute (NEDI), an existing customer and a leading manufacturer of electronic components in China, has placed an order for one AIX 2600G3 IC system in a 12x4-inch wafer configuration and one VP2400HW with 6x4-inch wafer capacity.
NEDI will use the systems to investigate power devices and LEDs.
Following delivery in the third and fourth quarter of 2011, the new systems will be installed and commissioned by a local Aixtron service support team alongside the company’s already existing Aixtron MOCVD systems at the company’s state-of-the-art facility located in the JiangNing Economic & Technological Development Zone, NanJing China.
Kun Chun Mao, who is in charge of purchasing these systems at NEDI, comments, “These are not our first Aixtron MOCVD systems but they will play a vital part in our planned development of materials for power devices and LEDs. My team is very familiar with the technology and they trust Aixtron’s advanced technology with its ease of use, versatility as well as process compatibility with our existing recipes and procedures.”
“We have also been very satisfied with the first-class local support provided by the Aixtron service office and the enlarged spare parts stock in Shanghai. This partnership will serve us well when we begin operations with the new reactors,” he continues.
