HC SemiTek Purchases Additional Veeco MOCVD Systems For LED Production

Stocks in this article: VECO

Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO) announced today that HC SemiTek Corporation (300323: CH), one of China’s leading LED manufacturers, has purchased additional TurboDisc® MaxBright® GaN MOCVD Systems for high volume production of light emitting diodes (LEDs) for display and general lighting applications. The order, placed in the third quarter of 2012, was for Veeco’s new High Performance (MHP) version of the system.

Dr. Rong Liu, President of HC SemiTek, stated, “Veeco’s MOCVD products offer stable process and have already helped us to successfully produce high quality, high brightness LEDs. The addition of MaxBright MHPs to our manufacturing line will allow us to ramp additional production quickly, due to the seamless process transfer from our existing Veeco toolset.”

Jeff Hawthorne, Veeco’s Senior Vice President, MOCVD, commented, "We are pleased HC SemiTek has once again chosen Veeco’s MOCVD technology for their production requirements. The MaxBright MHP helps drive our customers’ productivity and yield, while reducing manufacturing costs.”

About the TurboDisc MaxBright MHP GaN MOCVD Multi-Reactor System

The MaxBright MHP is the industry's most productive MOCVD system designed to manufacture high quality, high brightness LEDs, by providing as much as 20% within-wafer wavelength uniformity improvement, enhanced serviceability and a 15% increase in footprint efficiency as compared to the MaxBright. Higher yields are achieved from improved thermal and flow capability. This system leverages Veeco’s production-proven Uniform FlowFlange® technology and automation expertise by combining multiple high throughput MOCVD reactors in a modular 2- or 4-reactor cluster architecture.
