SemiLEDs qualifies Veeco K465i MOCVD system for high-volume LED production
Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that its TurboDisc K465i gallium nitride (GaN) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system has recently been qualified by SemiLEDs Corp of Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan for the high-volume production of high-brightness LEDs.
SemiLEDs makes LED chips and components primarily for general lighting applications, including street lights and commercial, industrial and residential lighting. The firm sells blue, green and ultraviolet (UV) LED chips under the MvpLED (metal vertical photon LED) brand.
“In addition to their proven MOCVD technology, Veeco’s commitment to providing best-in-class LED manufacturing equipment, as well as enhanced local support with their technology center in Hsinchu, makes the selection of Veeco as our vendor a logical choice,” comments SemiLEDs’ president and chief operating officer Chuong A. Tran Ph.D.
“Our TurboDisc K465i platform consistently offers excellent productivity while keeping production costs low,” says William J. Miller Ph.D., Veeco’s executive VP, Process Equipment. “Our Taiwan Technology Center will help the SemiLEDs Taiwan team learn best practices to maximize the value of their new system and grow as a leader in the energy-efficient lighting market.”
