New €100 million German research facility will feature the latest technologies

Deposition equipment company Aixtron has begun building a new innovation centre at its headquarters in Herzogenrath, Germany, investing around €100 million which includes 1000m2 of clean room with additional space for the required metrology equipment.

The research facility will feature the latest technologies available in the industry, according to Aixtron. The first systems are scheduled to move into the new building during the second half of 2024. The official handover is planned for early 2025.

"We have just completely renewed our portfolio with our successful G10 product family. The demand from our customers is already very high, so we are in the middle of a volume ramp. And we are now also starting to work on the next generation of innovative technical solutions. With this, we will successfully drive forward the electrification of the world with the megatrends of digitalisation, electromobility, and energy efficiency. The new innovation centre provides us with essential capacities for all of this," says elix Grawert, CEO of Aixtron SE.

The cleanroom will be class ISO 6, expandable up to ISO 4. Aixtrons says it will be one of the most compact and complex semiconductor fabs in the world.
