Veeco Big In China With Multiple MOCVD Order From Sanan
The largest LED manufacturer in China will use the reactor to grsow LEDs for applications including backlighting and general illumination
Sanan Optoelectronics placed a multi-tool order for Veeco’s TurboDisc MaxBright M MOCVD systems in the third quarter of 2013.
The multi-reactor systems will be used to ramp production of LEDs in its Xiamen, China fab for applications including backlighting and general illumination.
Zhiqiang Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Sanan, says, “Veeco has been and remains our MOCVD supplier of choice. As we were selecting equipment for our new phase of expansion, it was evident that the MaxBright M would give us the best footprint efficiency to maximise space and productivity in our Xiamen fab. Veeco has been a great partner for us since as we have solidified our position as the top LED manufacturer in China and as we have increased our business outside of China as well."
William J. Miller, Veeco’s Executive Vice President, comments, “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Sanan and look forward to supporting their expansion plans. According to IHS - IMS Research, a leading LED industry research firm, China remains the largest region in LED chip production with the most potential for adoption across all lighting applications. We believe Sanan is well positioned to capitalize on that growth."
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 light emitting diodes. The MaxBright M provides up to 15 percent improved footprint efficiency, easier serviceability and offers flexible layout configurations compared to the original MaxBright.
Sanan Optoelectronics is engaged in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of full colour ultra-high brightness LEDs, epitaxial wafers, photo-diode detectors and compound solar cells. The company is headquartered in Xiamen, PRC.
