KaiStar Selects Veeco To Support LED Manufacturing Ramp

The joint venture will use Veeco's MOCVD reactor to increase its indium gallium nitride (InGaN) LED production


KaiStar Lighting ordered multiple Veeco TurboDisc MaxBright M MOCVD Systems in the second quarter of 2013.



KaiStar, a joint venture between Epistar Corporation and Shenzhen Kaifa Technology Co., Ltd., is based in Xiamen, China. The systems will be added to KaiStar’s current installed base of Veeco MOCVD systems as part of their 2013 capacity expansion plan.

MJ Jou, President of Epistar Corporation, comments, “This latest capacity expansion is based on our customers’ growing demand for LEDs for backlighting and general illumination applications. We have been delighted with the performance of Veeco’s production-proven MOCVD systems, which provide high productivity and low cost of ownership. Combined with their excellent service and support, it was an easy decision for us to again turn to Veeco for our manufacturing ramp."

William J. Miller, Veeco’s Executive Vice President, adds, “We are gratified that KaiStar has again chosen Veeco as their MOCVD supplier of choice as they ramp production. As always, we are committed to help them achieve their manufacturing goals."

Veeco’s TurboDisc MaxBright M GaN MOCVD Multi-Reactor System is one of the industry’s highest footprint efficiency MOCVD systems designed to manufacture high quality, high brightness LEDs. The MaxBright M provides up to 15 percent improved footprint efficiency, easier serviceability and offers flexible layout configurations compared to the original MaxBright.

KaiStar has registered capital of $120 million. The company plans to focus on the lighting market through the production of InGaN LEDs for lighting and backlighting applications, lamps and automotive products.





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.
