Taiwan’s EpiLEDs orders further Aixtron CRIUS II-L MOCVD systems

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany says has announced another repeat order (made in first-quarter 2013) from EpiLEDs Co Ltd of Tainan Science Park, Taiwan to support its ramp-up of gallium nitride (GaN)-based LED production for lighting applications. The order for two CRIUS II-L 69x2-inch metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) systems is due for delivery in third-quarter 2013. EpiLEDs is producing the LEDs exclusively using MOCVD equipment from Aixtron.

EpiLEDs designs and manufactures blue, green, red and white light LED epiwafers and chips with a full range of wavelengths (from 365nm to 940nm), suitable for applications such as indicators of consumer electronics, light source of fax machines and scanners, indoor or outdoor display boards, automotive lightings, traffic signals and illuminators.

“We want a smooth ramp-up of production based on existing, proven technology,” says EpiLEDs’ president MingSen Hsu. “The CRIUS II-L meets our requirements for high throughput enabled by semi-automated loading and best cost-of-ownership in class,” he comments. “Further, the system is already fully qualified for production of EpiLEDs’ high-end LED power chips… we plan to continue to work closely with Aixtron in meeting our future MOCVD needs,” he adds.

The CRIUS II-L systems are delivered with Aixtron’s ARGUS Topside Temperature Control (TTC) system. The method eliminates temperature variation within each run and run-to-run, boosting production yields, says Aixtron.
