Veeco Impresses KaiStar With GaN MOCVD Tool

KaiStar, a JV between Epistar and Shenzhen Kaifa Technology will add to its existing fleet of Veeco MOCVD systems as part of its 2013 LED capacity expansion plan
Veeco Instruments has received an order for multi and single-chamber TurboDisc MOCVD systems, including the new MaxBright M, from KaiStar Lighting Co., Ltd.



KaiStar, a joint venture between Epistar and Shenzhen Kaifa Technology Co., Ltd., is based in Xiamen, China and began LED production in 2012.

The systems will be added to KaiStar’s existing fleet of Veeco MOCVD systems as part of its 2013 capacity expansion plan.

MJ Jou, President of Epistar Corporation comments, “This latest capacity expansion in Xiamen is in keeping with our goal to maximise our position in the China LED backlighting, automotive and general illumination market."

"Since we originally selected Veeco as our MOCVD equipment supplier for KaiStar a year ago, we have been extremely impressed with the product quality, service and support we have received. A critical deciding factor has been Veeco’s quick process transfer which is important as we share know-how across our LED manufacturing sites. In addition, the TurboDisc’s low cost-of-ownership made it a straight-forward decision to turn to Veeco as we add more tools for KaiStar in 2013."

Bill Miller, Executive Vice President of Veeco, says, “We are pleased to support Epistar and Kaifa as they continue to expand their leadership position in the China market through KaiStar and their other joint ventures. We will remain focused on helping them to achieve their manufacturing goals."

Veeco’s TurboDisc MaxBright M GaN MOCVD Multi-Reactor System platform is an MOCVD system designed to manufacture high quality, high brightness LEDs. The firm says its MaxBright M provides up to 15 percent improved footprint efficiency, easier serviceability and offers accommodating layout configurations compared to the original MaxBright.



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.
