Vishay orders Aixtron MOCVD system to expand IR LED production capacity

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Aachen, Germany says that Vishay Semiconductor GmbH of Heilbronn, Germany has acquired a metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system (delivered at the end of March) to expand its infrared LED production capacity. The firm aims to substantially extend its product portfolio in this area.

“We opted for Aixtron’s planetary reactor, as it deposits high-quality layers and offers very high production stability, long operating times, and high throughput rates,” comments Dr Heinz Nather, senior vice president OPTO Division at Vishay Semiconductor. “Aixtron will support us with process expertise, thus enabling us to rapidly and efficiently expand our gallium arsenide-based infrared LED production,” he adds.

“We have great expectations of our ongoing cooperation with Vishay,” remarks Dr Frank Schulte, VP of Aixtron Europe, who describes Vishay Semiconductor as one of the world’s leading producers of semiconductors and power electronics.

Vishay Semiconductor is part of international electronics group Vishay Intertechnology Inc of Malvern, PA, USA which, with more than 22,000 staff and sales of almost $2.5bn, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductor elements (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, optoelectronic components, integrated circuits) and passive electronics components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, sensors, transformers).
