WIN to boost production with Aixtron MOCVD reactors
The firm will use the systems to manufacture power devices.
Aixtron SE has announced that WIN Semiconductors, an existing customer and a leading manufacturer of microwave devices in Taiwan, placed an order for two MOCVD systems.
The firm is purchasing another AIX 2600G3 system in a 7x6-inch wafer configuration as well as its first AIX 2800G4 system in a 8x6-inch wafer configuration. WIN will use the systems to develop and mass produce various high performance devices.
The reactors will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2011 and be installed and commissioned by a local Aixtron service support team at the company’s state-of-the-art facility located in Kuei Shan Hsiang, Taiwan.
WIN Semiconductors comments, “This is the first Aixtron G4 MOCVD system for us so it is especially important for our further business development. In order to expand our production throughput we have decided that based on very good reactor experience and with an eye on the future we would not only acquire another G3 but also our first G4. As well as bigger wafer capacity, this will give us top performance across all the parameters coupled with features we are familiar with such as ergonomics, versatility plus seamless process compatibility with our existing reactors. As well as being trustworthy, Aixtron equipment also comes with guarantees and full back up thanks to their responsive and knowledgeable service staff.”
WIN Semiconductors is a designer, developer, manufacturer and vendor of GaAs microwave integrated circuits and became one of the first Taiwanese companies to recognise the opportunities in the market for terrestrial compound semiconductor solar cells. In 2007, it installed a dedicated Aixtron AIX 2600G3 IC epitaxy reactor as the foundation for its diversification into solar cell manufacturing.
