Oxford Instruments-TDI Acquires Intellectual Property rights from Fox Group

Oxford Instruments-TDI, a world leader in the development of Hydride Vapour Phase Epitaxy (HVPE) processes and techniques for the production of novel compound semiconductors such as GaN, AlN, AlGaN, InN, InGaN, has just entered into a licensing agreement with The Fox Group.

This agreement is for the acquisition of certain intellectual property, allowing Oxford Instruments-TDI to offer hardware and processes for the production of light emitting devices (LEDs) and p doped layers, in addition to the hardware and process already offered for the growth of III-Nitride materials. Comments Frazer Anderson, Business Development Director at Oxford Instruments-TDI, “This Agreement allows for an expansion of the existing processes and materials structures we can offer, especially to our R&D customers, in the field of light emitting structures. Using TDI’s HVPE technology, Oxford Instruments can produce templates for applications such as High Brightness Light Emitting Diodes (HBLEDs), Laser Diodes, High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT), and the acquisition of this IP will help us to extend our offering.” Fox Group’s President, Barney O’Meara, said “We are pleased TDI have chosen to license Fox Group’s IP. They have long been one of the leading companies in HVPE processes and materials, with expertise all the way from fundamental science to implemented processes and products. Coupled with Oxford Instruments’ proven track record in semiconductor equipment, we look forward to Fox Group’s IP helping TDI become a major contributor to evolving greentech-cleantech solutions in solid state lighting and efficient power conditioning.” This acquisition will facilitate further the development of Oxford Instruments’ world recognised scientific expertise, coupled with its commitment to innovation and creating world class products
