Sanan Places Order for 50 Veeco EPIK700 GaN MOCVD Reactors for LED Production

Veeco Instruments Inc. announced today that Sanan Optoelectronics, the largest LED manufacturer in China, has ordered 50 TurboDisc® EPIK700™ Gallium Nitride (GaN) Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) reactors for the production of light emitting diodes (LEDs). This order is the equivalent of 25 EPIK700 MOCVD “C2” (cluster) systems. In keeping with its bookings policy, Veeco will record the purchase order as deposits are received.

“Sanan chose the EPIK700 due to its industry leading cost of ownership model and excellent footprint efficiency,” said Zhiqiang Lin, Vice Chairman and CEO of Sanan. “Our beta testing of EPIK700 proved its production-worthiness, and we are confident in its capabilities and value to our Xiamen business expansion plans. Veeco has been a great partner for Sanan as we have solidified our position as the top LED manufacturer in China and increased our business outside of China as well.”

Based on Veeco’s proven TurboDisc technology, the EPIK700 MOCVD system enables customers to achieve a cost per wafer savings of up to 20 percent compared to previous generation MOCVD systems through improved wafer uniformity, reduced operating expenses and increased productivity.

“This large order from Sanan, the largest single purchase order Veeco has received since 2009, speaks volumes about the EPIK700’s production readiness and the recovery in the MOCVD market,” said John Peeler, Veeco’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are in a great position to continue to serve our LED customers with the best MOCVD technology and customer support, and remain the industry leader.”

About TurboDisc EPIK700 GaN MOCVD SYSTEM

Veeco’s new breakthrough EPIK700 MOCVD system is the LED industry’s highest productivity MOCVD system that reduces cost per wafer by up to 20 percent compared to previous generations. Available in one-and two-reactor configurations, EPIK700 features breakthrough technologies including the new IsoFlange™ and TruHeat™ technologies that provide homogeneous laminar flow and uniform temperature profile across the entire wafer carrier. These technological innovations produce wavelength uniformity to drive higher yields in a tighter bin. EPIK700 offers a 2.5x throughput advantage over other systems due to its large reactor size. Designed for mass production, EPIK700 accommodates 31x4”, 12x6” and 6x8” wafer carrier sizes. Customers can easily transfer processes from existing TurboDisc systems to the new EPIK700 MOCVD platform for quick-start production of high quality LEDs. Because of the flexible EPIK700 MOCVD platform, more upgrades, added benefits and future enhancements will continue to differentiate this world-class system.
