Epistar has received AIXTRON’s first CRIUS II-XL system in a 19x4-inch wafer configuration for the mass production of ultra-high brightness (UHB) blue and white LEDs.
The CRIUS II-XL system has successfully passed the process demonstration and acceptance test. Introduced in November 2011, the AIXTRON CRIUS II-XL configuration offers reactor capacity as high as 19x4 inch, which represents a capacity increase of 46% compared to the original CRIUS II, giving it the highest throughput and lowest cost of ownership in the whole LED industry.
In line with their usual procedure, Epistar will now further qualify the system in mass production. Epistar plan to purchase more CRIUS II-XL systems, when they expand their production capacity.
