AIXTRON AG announced
today that in the third quarter 2009 SemiLEDs placed an order for one Close
Coupled Showerhead CRIUS MOCVD system in a 7x4 inch configuration. The system
will be delivered in the fourth quarter 2009 and installed at the company's
state of the art 4-inch LED chip line at its production facility in Taiwan.
Dr. Chuong Tran, President and COO of SemiLEDs, comments, "We have chosen
the AIXTRON CRIUS system equipped with the Dynamic Reactor Height Adjustment
feature, which facilitates growth at elevated pressures, providing an advantage
for our proprietary MVP structure. Plus, we particularly appreciate their responsive
back-up service ensuring we can meet our production obligations.”
Dr. Christian Geng, Vice President Greater China of AIXTRON, adds: “We
are looking forward to this 4-inch project as it is the first Close Coupled
Showerhead Reactor to complement the existing manufacturing line of Planetary
Reactor systems at SemiLEDs.”
