Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany is to deliver high-end MOCVD technology to long-standing customer Visual Photonics Epitaxy Co Ltd (VPEC) of Ping-Jen City, Taiwan.

The pure-play foundry, which specializes mainly in wireless and optical device epiwafers, plans to ramp up its epitaxy production with multiple AIX 2800G4 metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) cluster systems to meet the growing global demand for various photonic and electronic applications.

Aixtron will deliver all AIX 2800G4 reactors with an 8x6-inch wafer configuration, enabling what is claimed to be maximum yield at the highest quality level available in the market. For manufacturing diode lasers such as vertical-cavity edge-emitting lasers (VCSELs) and edge emitting lasers (EEL), the AIX 2800G4 is claimed to have a strong reputation due to its product performance and the high-volume manufacturing capabilities of the automated Aixtron Planetary batch reactor concept.

“Aixtron is the leading provider of high-volume manufacturing equipment for arsenide phosphide (AsP) based materials,” comments VPEC’s senior VP Neil Chen. “As a proven tool for high-volume production in the area of photonic applications, the AIX 2800G4 system delivers exactly the outstanding uniformity and reproducibility but also flexibility and versatility that we require as an epi foundry to serve the needs of our demanding customers,” he adds.

“Driven by the growing number of applications and the continuing penetration of high-end communication technology, the demand for arsenide phosphide-based optoelectronic devices such as VCSELs or datacom lasers is expected to increase further,” says Aixtron’s president Dr Bernd Schulte. “Based on a long-standing and trustful relationship with VPEC, we are looking forward to support the growth of one of the leading epi foundries in Asia.”
