Aixtron SE announced that Xiamen Changelight, a Chinese optoelectronics manufacturer, has completed the qualification of Aixtron’s Close Coupled Showerhead MOCVD system AIX R6 for mass production of LEDs. According to Aixtron, in the course of the qualification process, the AIX R6 system not only demonstrated its production capabilities but also proved its excellent performance in terms of gas consumption, uniformity, and intrinsic yield. Aixtron says that Changelight’s qualification of the Aixtron AIX R6 system, which Aixtron designed specifically for LED mass production, marks a significant achievement for Aixtron’s next generation MOCVD manufacturing equipment.
“We are delighted that Changelight has qualified the AIX R6 for LED high-volume manufacturing while at the same time putting the system into production. By meeting Changelight’s production standards, we have achieved another important customer qualification milestone for the AIX R6. We deeply appreciate our customer’s trust in our next generation MOCVD technology. Based on our longstanding and great business relationship with Changelight, we are looking forward to further deepening our cooperation in the fields of gallium arsenide- and gallium nitride-based applications,’’ comments Dr. Bernd Schulte, Executive Vice President and COO of Aixtron SE.
