(Nanowerk News) AIXTRON AG announced today that in the second quarter 2009 Visual Photonics Epitaxy Co., Ltd (VPEC) placed an order for two AIX 2600G3 IC MOCVD reactors. They will be delivered in the first quarter 2010 and installed at the company's state-of-the-art production facility in Ping-Jen City, Taoyuan, Taiwan.
Vice President of VPEC, Neil Chen, comments: "We already have a number of AIXTRON mass production MOCVD systems in operation for the high volume manufacture of optoelectronic and microwave epiwafers. Due to exceptional demand from our customers we must further expand production capacity. We have operated AIXTRON systems for over ten years and so it was a straightforward decision to return to AIXTRON. For VPEC AIXTRON's service provides the perfect combination of process technology, throughput, uptime and responsive local support."
