Singulus develops TIMARIS STM coating system for micro-LED production

Singulus Technologies AG of Kahl am Main, Germany (which makes production equipment for the optical disc and solar sectors) has introduced the TIMARIS STM modular high-vacuum sputtering system, which is said to offer significant progress in micro-LED manufacturing. The first TIMARIS STM system has already been sold and delivered.

To meet the growing market needs for micro-LEDs (e.g, for the display industry), the focus is now on optimizing manufacturing processes. High-precision techniques are required to enable efficient placement and alignment of the micro-LEDs on a substrate. At the same time, controlling the crystal structure of the semiconductor material is crucial in order to maximize the overall performance of the LEDs.

Due to the wide range of applications, production must meet industrial standards in the future, with cost-efficient production methods playing a decisive role. Singulus says that, due to its experience and R&D, it has also demonstrated that it can meet the requirements individually and in a targeted manner.

“Our TIMARIS platform has a modular structure and can be equipped with various process and add-on modules for a wide range of requirements,” notes CEO Dr Stefan Rinck. “Thanks to this flexibility, we are always addressing new areas of application with the system,” he adds. “We are currently working on other interesting projects in semiconductor technology, which we expect to complete soon.”
