Veeco Launches AsP MOCVD System

High productivity and yields for red, orange, yellow LEDs and other III-V chips

Veeco Instruments has launched the new TurboDisc K475i AsP MOCVD System for the production of red, orange, yellow LEDs (R/O/Y), as well as multi-junction III-V solar cells, laser diodes and transistors. It has also announced that Yangzhou Changelight, a R/O/Y LED manufacturer, has evaluated and accepted the K475i. 

"Veeco continues to drive innovation with MOCVD technology that enables us to lower manufacturing costs and increase production with systems that are reliable, flexible and easy to use," said Shuangxiang Zhang, general manager of Yangzhou Changelight. "The K475i quickly achieved unparalleled yield and brightness that will allow us to meet the growing demand for red, orange and yellow LEDs as well as other As/P based devices."

According to research firm Strategies Unlimited, R/O/Y LED demand is expected to grow at a 10 percent compound annual rate through 2023. This demand for red, orange and yellow LEDs is being driven by signage, automotive, display and general lighting applications, as well as the emergence of new applications such as wearable smart devices.

Incorporating proprietary TurboDisc and Uniform FlowFlange MOCVD technologies,according to Veeco,  the new K475i system enables customers to reduce LED cost per wafer by up to 20 percent compared to alternative systems through higher productivity, best-in-class yields and reduced operating expenses.

"The new K475i is built upon production proven technologies that are incorporated into all of our industry-leading MOCVD systems," said James T. Jenson, senior vice president and general manager, Veeco MOCVD Operations. "We are very pleased with the world-class results reached at Changelight and their rapid qualification of the beta system. We have already seen strong industry interest in the K475i."
