Sanan expands LED production capacity with Veeco MaxBright M MOCVD systems

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that in third-quarter 2013 China’s largest LED maker Sanan Optoelectronics Co Ltd has placed a multi-tool order for TurboDisc MaxBright M metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems. The multi-reactor systems will be used to ramp production of LEDs in its fab in Xiamen, China, for applications including backlighting and general illumination.

“Veeco has been and remains our MOCVD supplier of choice,” says Sanan’s CEO Zhiqiang Lin. “As we were selecting equipment for our new phase of expansion, it was evident that the MaxBright M would give us the best footprint efficiency to maximize space and productivity in our Xiamen fab,” he comments. “Veeco has been a great partner for us since as we have solidified our position as the top LED manufacturer in China and as we have increased our business outside of China as well,” he adds.

According to LED market analyst firm IHS - IMS Research, China remains the largest region in LED chip production, with the most potential for adoption across all lighting applications, notes Veeco’s executive VP William J. Miller Ph.D. “We believe Sanan is well positioned to capitalize on that growth.”

Veeco reckons that its TurboDisc MaxBright M GaN MOCVD multi-reactor system is the industry’s highest-footprint-efficiency MOCVD system designed to manufacture high-brightness light-emitting diodes (HB-LEDs), providing up to 15% improved footprint efficiency and easier serviceability as well as offering flexible layout configurations compared to the original MaxBright.
