Asian HB-LED makers expanding with Veeco GaN systems

Veeco Instruments Inc of Woodbury, NY, USA says that an additional four of its TurboDisc K465 gallium nitride (GaN) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems have been accepted by high-brightness LED (HB-LED) manufacturers throughout Asia.

“Veeco’s K465 systems were qualified for production in a relatively short period of time, enabling our customers to ramp quickly,” says Sam DiRenzo, VP & general manager of Veeco’s MOCVD operations. “The speed of installing and qualifying an MOCVD system into production is critical, as our customers continue to increase capacity of HB-LEDs for growing applications such as lighting, displays, automotive and backlighting for laptops.”

Veeco claims that its TurboDisc K-Series MOCVD GaN platform, which includes the K300 and K465 models, delivers the industry’s highest throughput available for high-volume production of GaN-based blue and green LEDs and blue lasers.
