AIXTRON Announces a New Order from Sino-Semiconductor for VCSEL Equipment
Semiconductor equipment provider AIXTRON announced that the company has received an order for an AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD system from Chinese chipmaker Sino-Semiconductor for the production of laser diodes.
Sino-Semiconductor is currently the only manufacturer of VCSEL chips in China. Their main products include 10G, 25G datacom VCSEL chips and 0.1mW-4W sensor VCSEL chips which are used in optical communication, facial recognition modules, autonomous vehicles, LIDAR, security monitoring, laser TV, laser display, laser lighting and other fields. The company will receive its first AIXTRON tool in the course of Q418.
Ling Yong Peng, General Manager of Sino-Semiconductor, commented: "In recent years the AIX 2800G4-TM platform has already succeeded in the market for the production of VCSELs or datacom lasers. This is the first time we order an MOCVD system from AIXTRON and we are very much looking forward to benefit from the excellent performance of the AIX 2800G4-TM platform in terms of wafer homogeneity and maximum flexibility.”
