Hangzhou Liangdongxin Microelectronics Orders Ferrotec Evaporator

Auratus deposition process enhancement methodology to be used by new Chinese GaAs foundry 

Ferrotec has confirmed that a Temescal UEFC series evaporator, the first Auratus Enhanced system to be installed in China, will be delivered to Hangzhou Liangdongxin Microelectronics, a provider of GaAs foundry services. Ferrotec's Temescal evaporators are electron beam-based evaporative coating systems for metallisation and compound semiconductor manufacturing.

Hangzhou Liangdongxin Microelectronics was established by Hangzhou Li-On Microelectronics, a Chinese supplier of power semiconductors. Hangzhou Li-On was founded in 2002 with processing, quality and management technology transferred from On Semiconductor. In 2012, Li-On further expanded its brand by purchasing Sanyo's MOSFET product line. 

"With the growth of mobile devices in China and the expansion of IoT (Internet of Things), the demand for next generation of semiconductor devices based on the GaAs material is growing.To ensure the success of our new GaAs foundry, we need a tool that could deliver high production throughput, consistent process uniformity, and operational efficiency to minimise our total cost of ownership," said William Wang, COO of Liangdongxin.

 "After a rigorous evaluation process, we concluded that Ferrotec's Temescal UEFC system is the best evaporator in meeting our specifications for thickness, composition and particulate control and we look forward to the high performance devices we will be able to produce on this system."

Gregg Wallace, managing director of Temescal Systems at Ferrotec commented: "The Chinese government has committed to becoming more self-sufficient in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices, and Hangzhou Liangdongxin Microelectronics' new GaAs based foundry will enable the production of leading-edge devices that power mobile and IoT."

He added: "Ferrotec's Temescal UEFC evaporator is a workhorse in the production of compound semiconductor devices and our Auratus Deposition Process Enhancement Methodology delivers unmatched product quality and operating efficiency. We look forward to strong growth from Hangzhou Liangdongxin Microelectronics and this tool will be an exceptional fit with their expanding GaAs foundry business."

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.
