Trifortune Buys Aixtron Tool For GaN LED Growth

The 56 x 2 inch reactor will be used to grow gallium nitride on alternative substrates
Jiangsu Trifortune Electronic Technology, China, has ordered an AIX G5 HT system to develop GaN based high brightness LEDs.

The Aixtron system will be equipped to handle 56 x 2 inch wafers per run and will be installed at Trifortune’s R&D centre.

The developed process will be transferred to mass production in the Jiangsu area upon successful completion of the research.

Hu, Technical Head of Trifortune, comments, “We are developing GaN processes to grow LEDs on substrates that offer some advantages compared to the well-established sapphire substrates. To compete in the HB-LED market, there is a real need to achieve the maximum yield in our manufacturing process, so that products with better performance in lumen per dollar can be established."

Hu adds, "The AIX G5 HT system is widely acknowledged as having the top yields in LED mass production, along with excellently repeatable performance at high growth rates."

Andreas Toennis, Aixtron Chief Technology Officer, continues, “We are very pleased to contribute to Trifortune’s success and to share our comprehensive expertise in optimisation of epitaxy yields with them."

Trifortune Electronic Technology Co. Ltd, headquartered in Jintan City, China, was founded in May 2013. In phase one of its strategic business plan the company made an initial investment into a preproduction demo line located at Shahe, Beijing.

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.
