Sanan Orders 50 Veeco GaN MOCVD Reactors
Order is the largest Veeco has received since 2009
Veeco Instruments announced today that Sanan Optoelectronics, the largest LED manufacturer in China, has ordered 50 TurboDisc EPIK700 GaN MOCVD reactors for the production of LEDs.
"Sanan chose the EPIK700 due to its industry leading cost of ownership model and excellent footprint efficiency," said Zhiqiang Lin, vice chairman and CEO of Sanan. "Our beta testing of EPIK700 proved its production-worthiness, and we are confident in its capabilities and value to our Xiamen business expansion plans. Veeco has been a great partner for Sanan as we have solidified our position as the top LED manufacturer in China and increased our business outside of China as well."
Based on Veeco's proven TurboDisc technology, the EPIK700 MOCVD system enables customers to achieve a cost per wafer savings of up to 20 percent compared to previous generation MOCVD systems through improved wafer uniformity, reduced operating expenses and increased productivity.
"This large order from Sanan, the largest single purchase order Veeco has received since 2009, speaks volumes about the EPIK700's production readiness and the recovery in the MOCVD market," said John Peeler, Veeco's chairman and CEO. "We are in a great position to continue to serve our LED customers with the best MOCVD technology and customer support, and remain the industry leader."
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
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.
