KaiStar, 일반 조명 시장에 출시할 LED 생산 증대를 위해 Veeco의 EPIK 700 MOCVD 시스템 다수 구입

2015년 4월 5일

PLAINVIEW, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq:VECO) announced today that KaiStar Lighting Co., Ltd., based in Xiamen, China has ordered multiple TurboDisc® EPIK 700™ Gallium Nitride (GaN) Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) systems. KaiStar, a joint venture between Epistar Corporation and Shenzhen Kaifa Technology Co., Ltd., will use the EPIK 700 systems to ramp production of light emitting diodes (LEDs) for the general lighting market.

“As an early adopter of Veeco’s new EPIK 700 MOCVD system, we have seen its potential for significant production and cost-saving benefits for LED manufacturing,” said Dr. MJ Jou, President, Epistar Corporation. “Late last year, we were able to seamlessly transfer our LED process and rapidly qualify the EPIK 700 system for LED production in our Taiwan fab. We have now decided to expand our LED production at KaiStar in China with this new, highly productive MOCVD system.”

Based on Veeco’s proven TurboDisc technology, the EPIK 700 MOCVD system is the LED industry’s highest productivity MOCVD system. The EPIK 700 system received the 2015 CS Industry Award for Innovation in March.

“Since its formation, KaiStar has been an important Veeco customer and a leader in LED production,” said Jim Jenson, Senior Vice President, Veeco MOCVD Operations. “Their decision to use the award-winning EPIK 700 reflects the performance, reliability and production-readiness of our newest MOCVD system. We believe the EPIK 700 is the best MOCVD system by far to accelerate the growing adoption of solid state lighting. We expect that 2015 will be the crossover year in which shipments of LEDs for general lighting will surpass shipments of LEDs for backlighting, with the Epistar companies being a significant driver of that trend.”

About TurboDisc EPIK 700 GaN MOCVD SYSTEM

Veeco’s new EPIK 700 MOCVD system is the LED industry’s highest productivity MOCVD system — it reduces cost per wafer by up to 20 percent compared to previous generations. Available in one and two-reactor configurations, the EPIK 700 system features breakthrough technologies including the IsoFlange™ and TruHeat™ technologies which provide homogeneous laminar flow and uniform temperature profile across the entire wafer carrier. These innovations produce wavelength uniformity to drive higher yields in a tighter bin. The EPIK 700 system offers a 2.5x throughput advantage over other systems due to its large reactor size. Designed for mass production, the EPIK 700 system accommodates 31x4”, 12x6” and 6x8” wafer carrier sizes. Customers can easily transfer processes from existing TurboDisc systems to the EPIK 700 MOCVD platform enabling quick-start production of high-quality LEDs. 이 정상급 시스템은 융통성 있는 EPIK 700 MOCVD 플랫폼을 통해 향후 업그레이드, 추가 이점 및 향상된 기능을 제공하여 기타 시스템과 차별성을 지닙니다.
