Co. Ltd of Taiwan has placed a multiple order for AIXTRON’s latest MOCVD
System, the AIX G5 HT, to expand their manufacturing capacity of high brightness

the success of these new system generations, having already received multiple
purchase orders for tools of both technologies.
Based on the proven Planetary Reactor design, the AIX G5 HT features the largest
wafer capacity available (56x2/14x4/8x6inch) in combination with revolutionary
new reactor design features providing highest productivity and layer quality
by allowing very high growth rates at high process pressures. The tool capabilities
also include fully automated operation and advanced fab integration.
Dr. Rainer Beccard, Vice President Marketing at AIXTRON explains: “AIXTRON
is committed to demonstrate its technological leadership. With the introduction
of our new innovative technologies in our Next Generation Platform, the AIX
G5 HT, we provide a revolutionary new reactor design to our customers that enables
more than the doubling of productivity compared to the previous MOCVD generation."
