KaiStar Selects Veeco To Support LED Manufacturing Ramp

The joint venture will use Veeco's MOCVD reactor to increase its indium gallium nitride (InGaN) LED production

KaiStar Lighting ordered multiple Veeco TurboDisc MaxBright M MOCVD Systems in the second quarter of 2013.



KaiStar, a joint venture between Epistar Corporation and Shenzhen Kaifa Technology Co., Ltd., is based in Xiamen, China. The systems will be added to KaiStar’s current installed base of Veeco MOCVD systems as part of their 2013 capacity expansion plan.

MJ Jou, President of Epistar Corporation, comments, “This latest capacity expansion is based on our customers’ growing demand for LEDs for backlighting and general illumination applications. We have been delighted with the performance of Veeco’s production-proven MOCVD systems, which provide high productivity and low cost of ownership. Combined with their excellent service and support, it was an easy decision for us to again turn to Veeco for our manufacturing ramp."

William J. Miller, Veeco’s Executive Vice President, adds, “We are gratified that KaiStar has again chosen Veeco as their MOCVD supplier of choice as they ramp production. As always, we are committed to help them achieve their manufacturing goals."

Veeco’s TurboDisc MaxBright M GaN MOCVD Multi-Reactor System is one of the industry’s highest footprint efficiency MOCVD systems designed to manufacture high quality, high brightness LEDs. The MaxBright M provides up to 15 percent improved footprint efficiency, easier serviceability and offers flexible layout configurations compared to the original MaxBright.

KaiStar has registered capital of $120 million. The company plans to focus on the lighting market through the production of InGaN LEDs for lighting and backlighting applications, lamps and automotive products.
