Toyoda Gosei Buys Aixtron Showerhead System
New reactor design facilitates manufacture of high performance blue and UV LEDs
Deposition equipment firm Aixtron has announced that Japanese group Toyoda Gosei has acquired an enhanced 5x4-inch CRIUS Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) system to manufacture blue and ultra violet (UV) LEDs. The tool is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2017.
The novel, improved process chamber of the CRIUS tool enables significantly higher process temperatures than previously available III-V MOCVD reactors, according to the company.
It is designed to deliver the process conditions needed for the manufacture of high performance blue and UV LEDs which are used for various applications, such as high colour rendering LED lighting, curing or photocatalytic purification.
Toshihiro Yokoi, managing officer, general manager of Toyoda Gosei's Optoelectronics business unit, commented: "The new Aixtron CCS reactor will support us producing various enhanced LED products since we aim to grow our LED business by expanding the sale of products that will promote the use of LED lighting in Southeast Asia and other regions. Furthermore, we will increasingly focus on industrial-used LEDs (UV LEDs, glass-encapsulated LEDs) and LEDs for automobiles, where we can take advantage of our strengths as an automotive parts manufacturer."

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
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.
