GT Advanced Technologies To Participate At LED Forum Taipei 2013 Event October 16-17

MERRIMACK, N.H., Oct. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GT Advanced Technologies (Nasdaq:GTAT) is participating in the LED Forum Taipei 2013 event being held in Taipei, Taiwan October 16-17, 2013. GT's Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Raghavan, will discuss the key elements of HVPE GaN system and the expected advantages the system will provide for manufacturers.

Last May, GT announced that it would develop, manufacture and commercialize a HVPE system incorporating Soitec Phoenix Labs' (a subsidiary of Soitec) unique and proprietary HVPE technology including its novel and advanced source delivery system that is expected to lower the costs of precursors delivered to the HVPE reactor. The HVPE system will enable the production of low cost GaN templates on sapphire at scale. GT estimates that its HVPE system could lower precursor costs by greater than 80 percent while improving the throughput of expensive MOCVD tools and lowering CAPEX costs by up to 25 percent. The expected target date for the commercial availability of the HVPE system is the second half of 2014.
