Trinity to guide ARC`s sapphire furnaces into a new era

The partnership between the two firms will result in lower costs and increased equipment productivity in the competitive nitride LED market
After qualifying sapphire substrates at many LED chip companies, Jiangsu Trinity Material Co., Ltd. continues to further improve the efficiency of ARC Energy's CHES furnaces.

ARC Energy is currently working on the upgrades to lower costs and increase equipment productivity.

"After our success in qualifying material at LED chipmakers, we are seeking further improvements in our efficiency," says Jamin Sheng, chief executive officer for Trinity Material. "Our partnership with ARC Energy will result in lower costs and increased equipment productivity."

CHES furnaces allow seamless upgrades without investment in entirely new furnaces.

ARC Energy is currently working to further improve sapphire production costs by lowering consumable costs, reducing power consumption, and increasing equipment productivity. The company's CHES upgrades are targeted to further reduce costs in mid-2013. Trinity Material is poised to take advantage of these upgrades as they become available.

"In this challenging LED market, it is important for us to keep innovating, including supplying the latest technology upgrades to our partners such as Trinity Materials," adds Rick Schwerdtfeger, co-founder and chief technology officer for ARC Energy. "We look forward to offering additional productivity and cost of ownership enhancements to CHES products in 2013."

Trinity Material Co., Ltd. specialises in research, production and sales of LED grade sapphire substrate material. It has two 100% owned factories: Jiangxi Trinity Material Co., Ltd. and Jiangsu Trinity Material Co., Ltd.

Trinity Material produces 2 inch to 8 inch sapphire ingots for LED chip manufacturing.

Headquartered in Nashua, N.H., the Advanced Renewable Energy Company, LLC (ARC Energy), was founded in 2007 to commercialise cutting-edge technologies for LED and other clean energy markets.

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.
