AIXTRON announced that Hangzhou Silan Microelectronics has placed an order for six CRIUS II configuration deposition systems. The Hangzhou, a China based organization, placed the order in 2Q of 2010 and will receive the systems from 4Q of 2010 to 1Q of 2011.
The deposition systems will be utilized for the mass production of the GaN UHB (ultra-high brightness) green/blue LEDs. AIXTRON support team will commission the reactors at the Hangzhou’s production center in China.
AIXTRON Managing Director, Tony Pearce, stated that the CRIUS II Close Coupled Showerhead system reduces maintenance and speeds up the production process. The system will be delivered along with the multi-channel ARGUS pyrometer to enable real-time analysis and measurement of the surface temperature so as to check the thermometric distribution on the CCS system’s MOCVD growth surface.
Silan Azure General Manager, Jiang Zhongyong, stated that they were trying to ramp up their nitride LED wafers’ capacity and AIXTRON’s CRIUS II system proved to be ideal solution and demonstrated high pressure growth, increased productivity and higher growth rates.
