AIXTRON Supplies MOCVD Equipment to HLJ for VCSEL Production Expansion
HLJ Technology Co, a Taiwanese VCSEL epitaxy and chip producer has ordered AIXTRON’s MOCVD sets to increase its wafer capacity and its epitaxial wafer size production line for VCSEL.
AIXTRON will provide two sets of its AIX 2800G4-TM system to HLJ with the shipment scheduled in 4Q18. According to AIXTRON, with the performance of the Planetary Reactor concept, the AIX 2800G4-TM platform can control the thickness and wavelength uniformity of epitaxial layers, delivering production with high yield and good quality.
“In order to meet fast growing market demand for VCSEL both at epi wafer and chip levels, we decided to expand to 6-inch epi wafer manufacturing. Starting from Q4/2018, two sets of newly ordered AIXTRON MOCVD systems are scheduled to arrive at HLJ. In Q2/2019, the first complete high-volume VCSEL production line will be ready,” said Dr. Larry Lai, General Manager of HLJ.
Dr. Bernd Schulte, President of AIXTRON SE, commented, "We are very pleased that our new customer HLJ has picked the AIX 2800G4-TM system as it offers best-in-class high-volume VCSEL epi and chip manufacturing processes. Looking forward to our cooperation with HLJ, we will support the company in the alignment of their production processes to our equipment technology in the best way possible."
