Veeco Hosts MOVCD Meeting For Taiwan-based LED Players

LED manufacturers flocked to Veeco's MOCVD user meeting to debate manufacturing challenges

Veeco Instruments reveals that more than 150 LED manufacturing customers attended its MOCVD User Meeting in Tainan,Taiwan.

As the company reports, players from most of Taiwan’s top LED manufacturers such as Epistar Corporation, FOREPI, Genesis Photonics, Huga Optotech, Tekcore, Epileds and Arima Optoelectronics attended.

Speaking about "The Trend of LED Chips for Lighting" at the event, Charles Li, Genesis Photonics vice president of research and development addressed key drivers that he believes will help to commercialise LEDs for general lighting, such as cost reduction, which can be achieved by developing better high current LED chip technology.

Other topics presented at the meeting included “Driving Down LED Manufacturing Costs with TurboDisc MOCVD Products", from Veeco’s senior director of business development, Jia Lee, and an update on “GaN on Silicon LED Manufacturing" from Kenny Sun, Veeco’s director of the Taiwan Technology Center (TTC), located in Hsinchu Park.


Tim Liu, Veeco’s vice president and Greater China country manager, concluded: “We are pleased to have had the opportunity to engage with Taiwan’s leading LED manufacturers. Our MOCVD User Meeting provides an excellent forum where we focus on our customers’ manufacturing challenges and provide solutions to maximise their productivity and yield, while reducing costs."

Veeco recently introduced a new suite of MOCVD systems based on its TurboDisc technology to accelerate worldwide adoption of LED lighting by reducing manufacturing costs.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
