Forepi orders six more Aixtron reactors for LED production

Four CRIUS II-XL systems in a 19 x 4-inch wafer configuration and two G5 HT reactors in a 14 x 4-inch wafer configuration, will be used for the manufacturing of UHB gallium nitride based blue and white LEDs

Aixtron SE has announced that long-time customer Formosa Epitaxy Inc. (Forepi) has placed a new order for several MOCVD systems.

The order is for four CRIUS II-XL systems in a 19 x 4-inch wafer configuration and two G5 HT reactors in a 14 x 4-inch wafer configuration.

The tools will be used for the manufacturing of ultra-high brightness (UHB) GaN-based blue and white LEDs.

Forepi placed the order in the second quarter of 2012 and following their delivery between the third and fourth quarter of 2012, the systems will be installed and commissioned at the company’s new facility in the Pin-Jen industrial zone, Taiwan.

“Forepi began using the CRIUS II-XL system a few months ago and as we must now make provisions for the capacity increase at our new factory in the Pin-Jen industrial zone, we once again turned to Aixtron to provide the epitaxy systems.With short time-to- production and highest performance, throughput and yield, these systems are best suited to our needs,” a spokesperson from Forepi comments. “As we focus on 4-inch substrates, we have great confidence in Aixtron’s cutting edge epitaxy technology."

Aixtron’s Chief Operating Officer Bernd Schulte, adds, "We are very pleased to once again be able to support one of our longest-standing customers in Taiwan as they continue to expand. An order such as this from Forepi provides further proof of the value of the key features of our equipment, such as seamless process scale-up, excellent uniformity and highest throughput per footprint. All of these factors come together with the most impressive capacity available in today's equipment market."
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.
