Sanan, LED 대량 생산을 위해 50 EPIK 700 MOCVD 리액터 주문

2014년 12월 11일

PLAINVIEW, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO) announced today that Sanan Optoelectronics, the largest LED manufacturer in China, has ordered 50 TurboDisc® EPIK 700™ Gallium Nitride (GaN) Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) reactors for the production of light emitting diodes (LEDs). This order is the equivalent of 25 EPIK 700 MOCVD “C2” (cluster) systems. In keeping with its bookings policy, Veeco will record the purchase order as deposits are received.

“Sanan chose the EPIK 700 due to its industry leading cost of ownership model and excellent footprint efficiency,” said Zhiqiang Lin, Vice Chairman and CEO of Sanan. “Our beta testing of EPIK 700 proved its production-worthiness, and we are confident in its capabilities and value to our Xiamen business expansion plans. Veeco has been a great partner for Sanan as we have solidified our position as the top LED manufacturer in China and increased our business outside of China as well.”

Based on Veeco’s proven TurboDisc technology, the EPIK 700 MOCVD system enables customers to achieve a cost per wafer savings of up to 20 percent compared to previous generation MOCVD systems through improved wafer uniformity, reduced operating expenses and increased productivity.

“This large order from Sanan, the largest single purchase order Veeco has received since 2009, speaks volumes about the EPIK 700’s production readiness and the recovery in the MOCVD market,” said John Peeler, Veeco’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are in a great position to continue to serve our LED customers with the best MOCVD technology and customer support, and remain the industry leader.”

About TurboDisc EPIK 700 GaN MOCVD SYSTEM

Veeco’s new breakthrough EPIK 700 MOCVD system is the LED industry’s highest productivity MOCVD system that reduces cost per wafer by up to 20 percent compared to previous generations. Available in one-and two-reactor configurations, EPIK 700 features breakthrough technologies including the new IsoFlange™ and TruHeat™ technologies that provide homogeneous laminar flow and uniform temperature profile across the entire wafer carrier. 이러한 기술적 혁신은 파장 균일성을 가능하게 하여 더 좁은 빈에서 좋은 수율을 얻을 수 있습니다. EPIK 700은 자체적으로 큰 리액터 크기 덕분에 기타 시스템에 비해 2.5x throughput 이점이 있습니다. 대량 생산을 위해 설계된 EPIK 700은 31x4", 12x6" 및 6x8" 웨이퍼 carrier 크기를 사용할 수 있습니다. 고객은 쉽게 기존 TurboDisc 시스템에서 새로운 EPIK 700 MOCVD 플랫폼으로 공정을 이송하여 고품질 LED를 빠르게 생산할 수 있습니다. 이 정상급 시스템은 융통성 있는 EPIK 700 MOCVD 플랫폼을 통해 향후 업그레이드, 추가 이점 및 향상된 기능을 제공하여 기타 시스템과 차별성을 지닙니다.
