Veeco Launches AsP MOCVD System

High productivity and yields for red, orange, yellow LEDs and other III-V chips

Veeco Instruments has launched the new TurboDisc K475i AsP MOCVD System for the production of red, orange, yellow LEDs (R/O/Y), as well as multi-junction III-V solar cells, laser diodes and transistors. It has also announced that Yangzhou Changelight, a R/O/Y LED manufacturer, has evaluated and accepted the K475i. 

"Veeco continues to drive innovation with MOCVD technology that enables us to lower manufacturing costs and increase production with systems that are reliable, flexible and easy to use," said Shuangxiang Zhang, general manager of Yangzhou Changelight. "The K475i quickly achieved unparalleled yield and brightness that will allow us to meet the growing demand for red, orange and yellow LEDs as well as other As/P based devices."

According to research firm Strategies Unlimited, R/O/Y LED demand is expected to grow at a 10 percent compound annual rate through 2023. This demand for red, orange and yellow LEDs is being driven by signage, automotive, display and general lighting applications, as well as the emergence of new applications such as wearable smart devices.

Incorporating proprietary TurboDisc and Uniform FlowFlange MOCVD technologies,according to Veeco,  the new K475i system enables customers to reduce LED cost per wafer by up to 20 percent compared to alternative systems through higher productivity, best-in-class yields and reduced operating expenses.

"The new K475i is built upon production proven technologies that are incorporated into all of our industry-leading MOCVD systems," said James T. Jenson, senior vice president and general manager, Veeco MOCVD Operations. "We are very pleased with the world-class results reached at Changelight and their rapid qualification of the beta system. We have already seen strong industry interest in the K475i."



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.
