Epileds qualifies AIX R6 for LED mass production
Aixtron, a provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry, has announced that Taiwanese LED firm Epileds has qualified the AIX R6 tool for LED epitaxy mass production.
"The AIX R6 has demonstrated its capabilities during our qualification process, especially with regards to LED brightness, uniformity and throughput. It features a large capacity and ability to perform multiple continuous runs without any maintenance. As a consequence, we have moved the AIX R6 into production. We are looking forward to benefit from its lowest cost of ownership in the market. Based on our positive experience, we intend to make the AIX R6 the backbone of our high-brightness LED production", commented president of Epileds Ming Sen Hsu.
"We have a longstanding and trustful commercial relationship with Epileds. Therefore, we are very pleased to continue contributing to the group's success story in the global LED industry by delivering a high-performing system with a major productivity increase. Due to an already large install base, Epileds has extensive experience with our Close Coupled Showerhead technology which has facilitated the implementation of the AIX R6", says Bernd Schulte, executive VP and COO of Aixtron.
Epileds develops, designs and manufactures a wide range of blue, green, red, and white light LED wafers and chips at its production facility in Tainan Science Park.
