AIXTRON AG announced
today a triple order for MOCVD tools from Tonghui Electronics Corp., a new startup
and China based manufacturer of LEDs. The order is for a AIX 2800G4 HT IC Planetary
Reactor system, AIXTRON's flagship reactor for large-scale manufacturing
of LEDs and other advanced devices, and two AIX 2600G3 IC systems.
The AIX 2800G4 HT IC tool configured for 42x2” wafer capacity and two
G3 systems with 49x2” configuration have been delivered in the first respectively
third quarter of 2008. All three will be used for the development and manufacture
of Power Chip LEDs.
Prof. Liu, Tonghui Electronics Corp. comments: "AIXTRON has been a dependable
provider and supporter of MOCVD equipment and process technology for over a
decade. We have used their tools and based on this good experience we have decided
to place with them our first major order for LED equipment. The large-scale
reactors underpin our present and future production plans. We intend to become
a renowned provider of new high performance optoelectronic devices starting
with power LEDs and in future we might also add III-V concentrator photovoltaics
to our production range.
AIXTRON's MOCVD tools are the best available. For Power Chip LEDs it is
crucial that we have the best uniformity. In addition we will need superb production
efficiency in terms of uptime, maintenance and precursor efficiency. All of
these requirements will be perfectly met by AIXTRON's equipment and its
highest standards of local support and service."
