Epistar welcomes its first Aixtron CRIUS II-XL MOCVD system

The firm will use the system to mass produce ultra-high brightness blue and white LEDs

Aixtron's existing Taiwanese customer Epistar, a manufacturer of optoelectronic materials and devices, has received its first CRIUS II-XL system in a 19x4-inch wafer configuration.

The CRIUS II-XL system has successfully passed the process demonstration and acceptance test. In line with its usual procedure, Epistar will now further qualify the system in mass production. The company plans to purchase more CRIUS II-XL systems, when expanding its production capacity.

Ming-Jiunn Jou, President of Epistar, comments, “Looking at this first tool, I can see that the CRIUS II-XL will make a huge difference to our productivity. Epistar has always had great confidence in Aixtron technology and, thanks to its seamless process compatibility with our earlier generation reactors, the latest CRIUS technology is set to rapidly and efficiently drive forward future capacity expansion and technology advances.”

COO of Aixtron, Bernd Schulte, adds, “With the purchase of our latest system, the CRIUS II-XL, Epistar continues to pursue its cutting-edge production and engineering innovation in epitaxial growth. The CRIUS II-XL design concept offers the largest productivity with best-in-class uniformities, which massively increases yield and directly translates into enhanced competitiveness for Epistar’s products in an ever demanding marketplace.”

Located at the Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park in Taiwan, Epistar Corporation has for over a decade been focused on the development, manufacture and marketing of UHB LED products. Employing its proprietary MOCVD process technology, Epistar continues to successfully commercialize a full range of UHB LEDs worldwide, featuring low power consumption and long operation life.

Introduced in November 2011, the Aixtron CRIUS II-XL configuration offers an outstanding reactor capacity as high as 19 x 4 inch, which represents a capacity increase of 46% compared to the original CRIUS II. Aixtron reckons this gives it the highest throughput and lowest cost of ownership in the whole LED industry.
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.
