Trinity To Guide ARC`s Sapphire Furnaces Into A New Era

The partnership between the two firms will result in lower costs and increased equipment productivity in the competitive nitride LED market
After qualifying sapphire substrates at many LED chip companies, Jiangsu Trinity Material Co., Ltd. continues to further improve the efficiency of ARC Energy's CHES furnaces.

ARC Energy is currently working on the upgrades to lower costs and increase equipment productivity.

"After our success in qualifying material at LED chipmakers, we are seeking further improvements in our efficiency," says Jamin Sheng, chief executive officer for Trinity Material. "Our partnership with ARC Energy will result in lower costs and increased equipment productivity."

CHES furnaces allow seamless upgrades without investment in entirely new furnaces.

ARC Energy is currently working to further improve sapphire production costs by lowering consumable costs, reducing power consumption, and increasing equipment productivity. The company's CHES upgrades are targeted to further reduce costs in mid-2013. Trinity Material is poised to take advantage of these upgrades as they become available.

"In this challenging LED market, it is important for us to keep innovating, including supplying the latest technology upgrades to our partners such as Trinity Materials," adds Rick Schwerdtfeger, co-founder and chief technology officer for ARC Energy. "We look forward to offering additional productivity and cost of ownership enhancements to CHES products in 2013."

Trinity Material Co., Ltd. specialises in research, production and sales of LED grade sapphire substrate material. It has two 100% owned factories: Jiangxi Trinity Material Co., Ltd. and Jiangsu Trinity Material Co., Ltd.

Trinity Material produces 2 inch to 8 inch sapphire ingots for LED chip manufacturing.

Headquartered in Nashua, N.H., the Advanced Renewable Energy Company, LLC (ARC Energy), was founded in 2007 to commercialise cutting-edge technologies for LED and other clean energy markets.



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.
