Changelight Orders More Veeco AsP MOCVD Systems

Company to boost red, orange, yellow LED production and capitalise on emerging AsP photonics market

Veeco Instruments has announced that Chinese LED company Changelight has ordered additional TurboDisc K475i AsP MOCVD systems to increase production of red, orange, yellow LEDs.  Changelight qualified and put into production its first K475i system in February 2016.

"Our first K475i system has exceeded our expectations in terms of lowering manufacturing costs, driving exceptional uniformity and producing unmatched yield and brightness," said Shuangxiang Zhang, general manager of Yangzhou Changelight. "Adding this capability will enable us to meet existing demand for red, orange and yellow LEDs, as well as position ourselves to capitalise on the emerging AsP photonics market."

Introduced in February 2016, the K475i system incorporates proprietary TurboDisc and Uniform FlowFlange MOCVD technologies and enables Veeco 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. 

"Changelight's quick adoption of Veeco's K475i technology is a testament of its production-proven functionality," said William J. Miller, president, Veeco. "Changelight will benefit from superior uniformity and repeatability lowering their cost of ownership."

Veeco's proprietary Uniform FlowFlange technology (pictured above) is said to produce films with very high uniformity and improved within-wafer and wafer-to-wafer repeatability resulting in low cost of ownership. The technology is designed to provide fast process optimisation and fast tool recovery time after maintenance, according to the company, enabling high productivity for applications such as lighting, display, solar, edge-emitter laser diodes, VCSELs and heterojunction bipolar transistors.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
