LandMark Optoelectronics to boost production
Four new MOCVD sets will expand production capacity by 20 percent
According to a report in Digitimes, LandMark Optoelectronics, a maker of GaAs- and InP-based epitaxial wafers used to make laser diodes and photo detectors, will expand production capacity by 20 percent.
This will be through adding four new MOCVD sets to reach a total of 18 in the fourth quarter of 2015.
A partner of Intel Silicon Photonics' research project, LandMark Optoelectronics started production of silicon-based epitaxial wafers at the end of Q3 2015; two of the four MOCVD sets will be used to produce such wafers, the company said.
