Veeco MOCVD systems popular with HC SemiTek

China’s LED chip manufacturer has purchased several reactors from Veeco to mass produce gallium nitride based products
HC SemiTek Corporation has purchased additional Veeco TurboDisc MaxBright GaN MOCVD Systems.

The firm will use the reactors for the for high volume production of LEDs for display and general lighting applications.

The order, placed in the third quarter of 2012, was for Veeco’s new High Performance (MHP) version of the system.

Rong Liu, President of HC SemiTek, states, “Veeco’s MOCVD products offer stable process and have already helped us to successfully produce high quality, high brightness LEDs. The addition of MaxBright MHPs to our manufacturing line will allow us to ramp additional production quickly, due to the seamless process transfer from our existing Veeco toolset.”

Jeff Hawthorne, Veeco’s Senior Vice President, MOCVD, adds, "We are pleased HC SemiTek has once again chosen Veeco’s MOCVD technology for their production requirements. The MaxBright MHP helps drive our customers’ productivity and yield, while reducing manufacturing costs.”

The MaxBright MHP MOCVD system is designed to manufacture high quality, high brightness LEDs. Veeco says it provides as much as 20 percent within-wafer wavelength uniformity improvement, enhanced serviceability and a 15 percent increase in footprint efficiency as compared to the MaxBright.

Higher yields are achieved from improved thermal and flow capability. This system leverages Veeco’s production-proven Uniform FlowFlange technology and automation expertise by combining multiple high throughput MOCVD reactors in a modular 2- or 4-reactor cluster architecture.

HC SemiTek Corporation, formerly Wuhan HC SemiTek Co., Ltd., is an LED chip supplier based in Wuhan, China, and is committed to R&D, production and sales of high-quality LED chips, mainly in GaN-based blue and green LEDs.
