Lattice Power Places One of the Largest Single Orders From China So Far Received by AIXTRON
(Nanowerk News) AIXTRON AG today announced a multiple system order for several CRIUS® (31x2 inch configuration) and AIX 2800G4HT MOCVD production systems (42x2 inch configuration) from Lattice Power, an existing customer in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province, China. This is one of the largest single orders from China AIXTRON had received.
Lattice Power placed its order in the fourth quarter of 2009 for the growth of high-power InGaN on silicon LEDs. The local AIXTRON support team will commission the new reactors at the company’s purpose-built facility in Nanchang between the first and the fourth quarter of 2010.
The order was received on the occasion of the Official Chinese Ceremony at the Hotel Adlon, Berlin, Germany on October 12, 2009 where various import / export contracts between the Chinese government and the Federal Republic of Germany were signed in the presence of the Chinese Vice President, Xi Jinping and the former German Federal Minister of Economics, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg.
Mr. Sonny Wu, Chairman and CEO, Lattice Power, says, “During discussions it quickly became clear that AIXTRON was the company that could deliver this large quantity of high performance production tools to our tight schedule. In this challenging commercial environment working with a professional partner such as AIXTRON is a prerequisite for success.” “AIXTRON’s delivery and support commitment secured our fast expansion plan for LCD backlighting and general lighting business”, adds Dr. Bo Lu, Executive Vice President of Lattice Power.
AIXTRON Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Bernd Schulte, comments, “We’re committed to provide full support for Lattice Power growth and expansion. We believe they’re one of the best LED contenders with strong and outstanding technology on GaN-on-Silicon.“
