Genesis Photonics Expands LED Production Line With Six CRIUS II Reactors

The Taiwanese based firm has ordered six 55x2-inch Aixtron New Generation CRIUS II MOCVD growth tools to manufacture blue and green GaN LED wafers.

Aixtron today announced a new order for six new generation CRIUS II 55x2-inch configuration deposition systems from existing customer Genesis Photonics. The Taiwan based company placed the order during the second quarter of 2010. After delivery of the systems between the fourth quarter 2010 and the second quarter 2011, they will be used for gallium nitride (GaN) green and blue LED production. The local Aixtron support team will commission the new reactors in Genesis Photonics’ dedicated facility.

DavidChung, Chairman of Genesis Photonics, comments, “We have great confidence in Aixtron’s new platform, the CRIUS II. Genesis has always used Aixtron Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) systems for the manufacture of our high performance green LED wafers. I know we can rely on the quality of Aixtron engineering and always appreciate their responsive local support.

Genesis recently won a large order which has taken us over our existing capacity limit so we must quickly bring in new expansion for our LED epi production line. When we receive the first CRIUS II system at the end of this year, we will transfer our recipes from our existing systems to the new platform before applying it to the systems to be delivered in 2011. We also anticipate placing further system orders during next year as we expand to meet demand."

“The new generation of Aixtron MOCVD not only doubles productivity but also provides even better epitaxial results," says Bastian Marheineke, VP Sales Aixtron. “The CRIUS II provides a straightforward migration path and scalability minimizing the time-to-market steps required. We’re committed to fully support for our customer’s success with the new platform." 

Founded in 2002, Genesis Photonics is headquartered in Tainan Science-based Industrial Park in Taiwan. With its advanced semiconductor technologies and efficient management, the company has rapidly grown going public in 2004.

The company's business focus is to provide GaN-based LED epi-wafer and chip products for applications that include general lighting, electronic displays, monitor backlights and automobile lamps. Genesis Photonics’ latest high-power LEDs are in great demand and considered the leading luminous components and energy-efficient lighting products. The company has its own brand of LED light bulb (LEDplux) which is marketed throughout Japan, China and Taiwan.
