AIXTRON AG announced
today an order for two additional MOCVD tools from Changelight Co., Ltd., a
company based in Xiamen's Torch Industry Park of Fujian Province, China. The
order which is for two AIX 2600G3 IC multiwafer production systems, was placed
in the fourth quarter of 2009 and both systems will be shipped in the second
quarter of 2010.
It was only a year ago that Changelight received its first AIX 2600G3 Planetary
Reactor system. Once again, they have been selected for large-scale manufacturing
of red, orange and yellow (ROY) ultra high-brightness (UHB) LEDs.
Prof. Wang Xiang Wu, General Manager Changelight, who has a decade of experience
working on Planetary MOCVD reactors, comments, “The addition of a further
pair of AIX 2600G3 systems will underpin the next step in our company strategy
to become the leader of the Chinese optoelectronics industry. They will provide
a major capacity boost for UHB ROY LED products – we are already a leader
in UHB ROY LED products and now Changelight is working hard to provide the very
best products for China's solid-state lighting program.
Changelight's experience with AIXTRON MOCVD tools has always been very satisfactory.
We are eagerly anticipating the usual rapid installation and commissioning of
these new reactors. This is all part of the AIXTRON broad technology package
and local support service."
