Taiwan's LED Chip Maker Ubilux to Boost Capacity With AIXTRON CRIUS II Systems
(Nanowerk News) AIXTRON SE today announced a new MOCVD reactor order from existing customer Ubilux of Tainan County, Taiwan. The order is for two AIXTRON CRIUS® II deposition systems in the 55x2-inch configuration which will be used to expand the company's production capacity for GaN-based HB LEDs.
Ubilux placed the order in the fourth quarter of 2010 and the systems will be delivered in the first quarter of 2011. A local AIXTRON support team will commission the new reactors at the state of the art clean-room facilities housed in the Ubilux headquarters in the Southern Taiwan Science Park, Tainan County, Taiwan.
President Dr. Henry Chen from Ubilux comments, "This is our first CRIUS® II system purchase order. After AIXTRON launched its new generation MOCVD systems, Ubilux was very glad to acquire them. Once we had finalized our expansion plans, we approached AIXTRON´s local representatives who sorted out the deal with us.
Ubilux already has several CRIUS® systems for GaN applications as well as a G3 system for GaAsInP application. We are impressed with these systems' good performance and we wholly trust AIXTRON technology. Over the years, we have built up an excellent relationship with the company so we were very interested in acquiring the newest generation systems for our further expansion plans. I expect these will be a perfect match to our requirements."
Christian Geng, General Manager AIXTRON Taiwan adds, "A notable feature of the Taiwan MOCVD community is the high number of the most advanced technology AIXTRON systems that are being used for the mass production of UHB-LEDs. Our support and field service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to guarantee customers receive the support they need by phone or on-site. In fact last year, the AIXTRON Taiwanese support team handled over 1,800 installations, upgrades, and customer support requests."
