AIXTRON, a provider of deposition equipment for semiconductor manufacturers, announced that it has received an order for multiple tools from the China-based color LEDs manufacturer, Sanan OptoElectronics.
The order was for multiple CRIUS 31x2 inch tools. AIXTRON’s local support team commissioned the HB GaN LED growth reactors at the new facility of Sanan in Tianjin in the first half of 2010.
Sanan OptoElectronics’ CEO, Simon Lin, stated that they have started a major expansion with their new facility. He added that they were searching for high-quality MOCVD tools for increasing the HB-LED manufacturing capacity. The CRIUS MOCVD tool’s high throughput and uniformity convinced them that the tools were the perfect option for Sanan. By teaming up with the support team of AIXTRON, Sanan would be able to boost HB GaN LED production to meet the market demand, Lin noted.
Sanan Optoelectronics deal with manufacturing, designing and distributing of epitaxial wafers, UHB (ultra high brightness) LEDs, compound solar cells, and photo-diode detectors.
