Sino-Semiconductor Buys Aixtron Tool For VCSEL Production

New Chinese customer orders first AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD system

Aixtron, a deposition equipment company, has announced that Chinese chipmaker Sino-Semiconductor has ordered an AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD system for the production of laser diodes.The tool will be delivered in the course of Q4/2018.

Sino-Semiconductor's main products include 10G, 25G datacom VCSEL chips and 0.1mW-4W sensor VCSEL chips. They are mainly used in optical communication, mobile & non-mobile facial recognition modules, autonomous vehicles, LIDAR, security monitoring, laser TV, laser display, laser lighting and other fields.

Ling Yong Peng, general manager of Sino-Semiconductor commented: "In recent years the AIX 2800G4-TM platform has already succeeded in the market for the production of VCSELs or datacom lasers. This is the first time we order an MOCVD system from Aixtron and we are very much looking forward to benefit from the excellent performance of the AIX 2800G4-TM platform in terms of wafer homogeneity and maximum flexibility."

"We are very pleased to have convinced Sino-Semiconductor of the performance of our AIX 2800G4-TM system. It is the ideal solution for high-volume production in the field of photonic applications. Looking forward to our new cooperation, we will support Sino-Semiconductor in the best possible adaption of their production processes to our equipment technology," says Bernd Schulte, president of Aixtron SE.
