수상

2015년 3월 25일

PLAINVIEW, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq:VECO) announced today that its TurboDisc® EPIK 700™ Gallium Nitride (GaN) Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) System won the Compound Semiconductor (CS) Industry Innovation Award for the highest distinction in compound semiconductor manufacturing over the last 12 months.

The CS Industry Innovation Award, which is based on an industry-wide nominating and voting process, recognizes success and development along the entire value chain of the compound semiconductor industry from research to completed device, focusing on the people, processes and products that drive the industry forward.

“We are honored to receive the CS Manufacturing Award for Innovation for the EPIK 700™ MOCVD system, particularly since the award was determined by a vote of our peers, LED customers and industry,” said Jim Jenson, Senior Vice President, Veeco MOCVD. “The EPIK 700 MOCVD system has the highest performance in the industry, reducing per wafer cost by up to 20 percent, and will play a significant role in the growing adoption of solid state lighting.”

The Innovation Award was awarded for the most innovative outcome from compound semiconductor manufacturing and highlights products and processes that demonstrate the most innovative approaches for pushing the technical barriers during the last year. In mid-March, the 2015 award was presented to Veeco’s Sudhakar Raman, Vice President of Marketing, MOCVD at the CS International Conference in Frankfurt, Germany.

"Making LEDs with good margins is tough in the current environment,” said Richard Stevenson, editor of Compound Semiconductor Magazine. “Increasing yield and productivity holds the key, making the latest multi-wafer tool from Veeco an attractive option."

This is the third time in four years that Veeco has won a major CS Industry Award. The TurboDisc® MaxBright® Multi-Reactor Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) System was awarded the Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Award in 2012 for the best innovative technology in compound semiconductor equipment. The GENxplor™ R&D Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) System won the Compound Semiconductor (CS) Industry Award for the biggest breakthrough in compound semiconductor manufacturing in 2014.

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.
