Formosa Epitaxy Incorporation boosts LED capacity with multiple AIXTRON CRIUS® tools

(PresseBox) (Aachen, ) AIXTRON AG today announced an order from Formosa Epitaxy Inc. (FOREPI) for further six CRIUS® Close Coupled Showerhead® MOCVD systems received in the first quarter of 2008.

Formosa Epitaxy Inc., one of Taiwan's leading manufacturers of ultra high brightness (UHB)LEDs, will use the systems for volume production of GaN-based UHB LEDs.

Dr. Fen Ren Chien, President of FOREPI, comments: "After quick transfer of the MOCVD process to our first CRIUS® systems in 2007, this is the second repeat order for CRIUS® systems and this technology has become one of the main platforms for our large scale high end LED production. That we have been able to make such good progress in the marketplace so quickly is largely due to the excellent performance of the AIXTRON MOCVD equipment backed up by top grade local support."

Dr. Rainer Beccard, Director of Marketing at AIXTRON, adds: "This order for our CRIUS® CCS tools confirms the exceptional capabilities in the design and operation of these systems.

Time and again customer orders such as this reaffirm how well the CRIUS® meets the challenges of mass production even in the most exacting materials environments."
