AIXTRON sells MOCVD systems to Jiangsu CANYANG for blue LED fab

September 6, 2011 — AIXTRON SE received an order from Jiangsu CANYANG Optoelectronics LTD. for four CRIUS II metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems in a 55 x 2" configuration. All systems will be dedicated to the growth of high brightness blue LEDs (HB-LED).

Jiangsu is a China-based joint venture with Taiwan-based LED chipmaker Formosa Epitaxy (FOREPI). The company is transferring to the new generation from its existing CRIUS MOCVD reactors. The company chose AIXTRON to minimize risks and production downtime as it ramps high-volume blue LED production at Jiangsu CANYANG, said FOREPI president Dr. Fen-Ren Chien. The CRIUS II MOCVD systems feature Showerhead technology and will transfer recipes from the first-generation systems.

Jiangsu CANYANG placed the order in Q2 2011; delivery is planned between Q2 and Q4; AIXTRON’s local support teams will install and commission the reactors. Jiangsu CANYANG’s capacity is expected to reach 50 sets of MOCVD equipment within the next two years.

Jiangsu CANYANG Optoelectronics LTD specializes in R&D and industrialization of LED epitaxial wafers and chips. The company produces ultra-high-brightness InGaN LED epitaxial wafers and LED chips.
