EpiWorks to boost MOCVD production capacity

The manufacturer of compound semiconductor epitaxial wafers is increasing the ability to produce high volumes of 4-inch and 6-inch wafers for VCSELs, edge-emitting lasers, detectors and photovoltaics
EpiWorks is majorly expanding with a multi-faceted expansion of its production capacity.

The company makes wafers used in applications such as optical components, wireless devices and high-speed communication systems.

“A clear migration toward applications that require significantly higher volumes, particularly in the area of optical materials and photonics is underway. The markets include consumer electronics, sensors and displays, digital projection, and data communications. As the leader in the manufacture and development of high performance compound semiconductor products, we are pleased to announce a major increase in capacity. This is part of an aggressive, long-term production capacity roadmap to satisfy increasing demand from photonic and RF customers,” says Nick Kolarich, Director of Sales and Marketing at EpiWorks.

The expansion increases the ability to produce high volumes of 4-inch and 6-inch wafers for VCSELs, edge-emitting lasers, detectors and photovoltaics with a better cost structure. The new capacity includes upgrades to existing tools and the latest Aixtron 2800 G4 MOCVD technology. This allows EpiWorks to quickly and seamlessly satisfy customer demand while providing greater flexibility for new product development.

“For many years EpiWorks has been the leading US-based manufacturing and development partner for novel and advanced photonic and optical devices. Our customers have leveraged our development expertise to commercialise numerous complex advanced technologies from the lab into next generation photonic products. We are excited to now see our high-volume manufacturing expertise enabling proliferation of these products under stringent specifications and at low cost,” explains Quesnell Hartmann, EpiWorks CEO.

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.
