Tonghui Electronics to Enter LED Market With AIXTRON MOCVD Tools
(Nanowerk News) AIXTRON AG announced today a triple order for
MOCVD tools from Tonghui Electronics Corp., a new startup and China based manufacturer
of LEDs. The order is for a AIX 2800G4 HT IC Planetary Reactor® system, AIXTRON’s
flagship reactor for large-scale manufacturing of LEDs and other advanced devices, and two
AIX 2600G3 IC systems.
The AIX 2800G4 HT IC tool configured for 42x2” wafer capacity and two G3 systems with
49x2” configuration have been delivered in the first respectively third quarter of 2008. All
three will be used for the development and manufacture of Power Chip LEDs.
Prof. Liu, Tonghui Electronics Corp. comments: "AIXTRON has been a dependable provider
and supporter of MOCVD equipment and process technology for over a decade. We have
used their tools and based on this good experience we have decided to place with them our
first major order for LED equipment. The large-scale reactors underpin our present and
future production plans. We intend to become a renowned provider of new high performance
optoelectronic devices starting with power LEDs and in future we might also add III-V
concentrator photovoltaics to our production range.
AIXTRON’s MOCVD tools are the best available. For Power Chip LEDs it is crucial that we
have the best uniformity. In addition we will need superb production efficiency in terms of
uptime, maintenance and precursor efficiency. All of these requirements will be perfectly met
by AIXTRON’s equipment and its highest standards of local support and service."
