Century Epitech Corp. increases power LED capacity with AIXTRON MOCVD tools

(PresseBox) ( Aachen, )
AIXTRON AG announced today a multiple order from Century Epitech Corp, located in Shenzhen, China, one of China's leading players in the high brightness LED sector.

The latest order is a multiple package comprising three AIX 2600G3 MOCVD tools - one in the 24x2" wafer configuration and two in the 49x2" configuration plus a single AIX 2800G4 HT tool in the 42x2" configuration.

The systems were delivered to the company's state of the art facilities in the new Shenzhen Guangming Technology Zone in the second quarter of 2008. The high capacity MOCVD reactors will be used for Century Epitech's planned expansion of power LED production.

Mr. ZhiMin Liang, board member comments: "We have been consistently impressed with the AIXTRON Group's MOCVD equipment and process technology. It was therefore a straightforward decision to place the order for our future production capacity expansion plans. Their equipment matches our needs for the manufacturing of power LEDs in high volume, cost competitively and with rapid time to market."

Dr. Ruquin Chen, COO of Century Epitech adds: "The reputation of these MOCVD tools is well known. AIXTRON reactors are constantly proving their capabilities for LEDs and other devices. In terms of uptime, uniformity and efficiency of precursor usage, and so on, they are unequalled."
