Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany says that Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany has purchased its AIX 2800G4-TM Planetary system for the manufacturing of mainly infrared-based high-power lasers and LEDs based on gallium arsenide (GaAs).
Aixtron is hence now supporting the capacity expansion at one of the leading suppliers of high-quality optoelectronic semiconductors to be used in an increasing number of applications, especially in the automotive and communication sector. The tool features an 8×6-inch configuration and was commissioned in second-quarter 2017.
“Their trust in our AIX 2800G4-TM system confirms our strategy to focus on solutions for the most demanding applications, where superior process performance is mandatory to meet our customer’s requirements,” says Dr Frank Schulte, vice president Aixtron Europe. “Following the recent qualification of our AIX G5 C platform and achieving this key milestone also with the AIX 2800G4-TM, we are looking forward to further deepen our partnership with one of the most innovative semiconductor manufacturers worldwide,” he adds.
