UOC To Boost GaAs LD Production With Aixtron Tool

The Taiwanese company is expanding its MOCVD manufacturing capacity to grow gallium arsenide based lasers
Aixtron SE has sold an AIX 2600G3 Planetary Reactor to Union Optronics Corp. (UOC).

The system is capable of handling 49 x 2 inch wafers in each run. The purchase was made in the second quarter of 2012 with delivery due in the fourth quarter of 2012.

President, Hir-Ming Shieh of UOC comments, “Based on the good experience with our existing Aixtron AIX 2600G3 system, we are now preparing capacity for expanded business opportunities with this new AIX 2600G3. We consider this configuration to be the most suitable choice to ramp up our advanced laser production capacity."

Christian Geng, Vice President Southeast Asia and General Manager of Aixtron Taiwan, adds, “We are excited that UOC has chosen Aixtron again, based on our superior technology and support, and we are looking forward to starting up this tool. UOC has an outstanding reputation for a wide range of laser diodes."

UOC was founded in 1996 with its main products being optical laser diodes with wavelengths ranging from infrared (1550nm) to red (630nm). The company also sells epitaxial wafers, chips, and packaged laser diodes. The company is headquartered in Yangmei City, Taoyuan County.

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.
