LandMark Optoelectronics expands capacity with Aixtron technology
Taiwanese epitaxial wafer supplier places repeat order for AIX 2800G4-TM System
Aixtron, a maker of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry, has announced that LandMark Optoelectronics, a supplier in GaAs and InP based epitaxial wafers for optical communication, industrial application, and special-purpose usage, has purchased another AIX 2800G4-TM system for the production of laser diode devices. The tool is due for delivery in the first quarter 2016.
Based on Aixtron's Planetary Reactor platform, the AIX 2800G4-TM is particularly suitable for the production of high-performance laser diodes, according to the company. The system has a Transfer Module (TM) that enables higher throughput and reduced cycle times.
In addition, the equipment design allows flexible configuration of wafers from 2 to 8 inch to address customer's products evolution over time while at the same time lowering the cost per wafer to a minimum.
"Our AIX 2800G4-TM perfectly matches LandMark's requirements for cost-efficient high-volume production of laser wafers. We will provide full support to LandMark to enable our customer to start up production with the new tool as quickly as possible", says Bernd Schulte, executive VP and COO of Aixtron SE.
