LED Manufacturers Gather For LED Taiwan

Industry leaders to share their perspectives on challenges and opportunities in the LED industry

Today at Taiwan's LED manufacturing exposition, LED Taiwan (March 25-28), presenters from Cree, Epistar, Osram Opto, and Philips Lumileds (with special video greetings from Nobel prize winner Shuji Nakamura) will share their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities in the LED industry in a session called  'What's Next for LED?'

As countries across the globe embrace the use of LED lighting, renewed capital spending and capacity increases are foreseen for both 2015 and 2016. 

According to the quarterly SEMI Opto/LED Fab Forecast on HB-LED front-end fabs, 2015 LED wafer fab equipment spending will rise approximately 24 percent to nearly $1.5 billion in 2015, which will boost epitaxy capacity this year. Investment momentum is expected to continue in 2016 with $1 billion spending in front-end LED epitaxy and chip facilities.

Other sessions running in this four day event include: Manufacturing Equipment and Materials; Sapphire and PSS; LED Advanced Technologies; and Smart Lighting and Automobile Lighting.

Speakers will feature from Advanced International Multitech, Aixtron, DISCO, Dow Corning, Shanghai Micro Electronics Equipment (AMEC), SEMI, Alinc Taiwan, Sil-More, Yole, EVG, Galaxy Technology Development, Meyer Burger, Monocrystal, Rigidtech, Sandvik Hyperion, Smooth & Sharp, Lextar, Everlight, Lextar, PlayNitride, Cree, Infineon Technologies Taiwan, and TSLC.

LED Taiwan is organised by SEMI and TAITRA and runs alongside Taiwan International Lighting Show (TILS) and Taiwan Solid State Lighting (TSSL).

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.
