Yangzhou Zhongke Orders Aixtron Systems
HERZOGENRATH, Germany, June 7, 2010 — Aixtron AG announced a new order for two CRIUS 31x2-inch configuration deposition systems from Yangzhou Zhongke Semiconductor Lighting Center Co. Ltd., headquartered in China.
The company placed the order in the fourth quarter of 2009 and after delivery in the second quarter of 2010 they will be used for GaN high brightness LED production for streetlight and display backlighting applications. The local Aixtron support team will commission the new reactors at the facility within the company’s research group, ISCAS.
“Our reason for purchase was an outstanding need for capacity increase. Up to now our research group, ISCAS, has been using our first Axitron system and they are very satisfied with the system's all round performance. Now, however, we need a new capability that gives us high throughput but with lower cost and easy operation,” said Dr. Wang GuoHong, general manager of Yangzhou Zhongke.
