Aixtron to boost Jiangsu Canyang HB blue LED capacity

The Chinese joint venture is expanding its indium gallium nitride LED manufacturing capacity.

Aixtron SE has a new order for four CRIUS II MOCVD systems in a 55x2-inch configuration from China´s Jiangsu Canyang Optoelectronics, a joint venture with Taiwan-based LED chipmaker Formosa Epitaxy (Forepi).

The company is seeking a smooth process transfer up from their existing CRIUS MOCVD reactors to Aixtron´s new generation platform.

Jiangsu Canyang placed the order in the second quarter of 2011 and after delivery in the period between the second and fourth quarters of 2011, one of Aixtron´s local support teams will install and commission the reactor in the company’s state-of-the-art production complex in China. All systems will be dedicated to the growth of high brightness blue LEDs.

Forepi President Fen-Ren Chien, comments, “We are embarking on a whole new era of high volume blue LED production at Jiangsu Canyang. To minimise risk and interruptions we have once again chosen Aixtron equipment. The outstanding performance of our existing CRIUS and G4 systems as well as the excellent design concept of the Showerhead technology I am confident will give us the proven fastest time-to-market.”

“While these will be Jiangsu Canyang´s first CRIUS II systems, I am convinced that the new systems will demonstrate the expected results as well as easy production process handling and excellent compatibility. In fact, my technicians are very keen to quickly gain experience with the new generation system and smoothly transfer all CRIUS recipes over to the CRIUS II systems,” he concluded.

Jiangsu Canyang Optoelectronics is a high-tech enterprise which is specialised in R&D and industrialisation of LED epitaxial wafers and chips. The company´s core business covers the production of Ultra-High Brightness InGaN LED epitaxial wafers and LED chips and its capacity is expected to reach 50 sets of MOCVD equipment within the next two years. In April 2010, the company placed a multiple tool order for Aixtron Planetary and Showerhead HB-GaN LED MOCVD systems.
