Changelight Purchases Multiple Veeco EPIK 700 MOCVD Systems to Expand Production

Veeco Instruments announced today that Xiamen Changelight (Changelight) has purchased multiple TurboDisc® EPIK™ 700 Gallium Nitride (GaN) Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) systems for faster production and greater yield of high-quality LED for general lighting applications.

According to Changelight, the decision to purchase multiple EPIK 700 systems was based on its reliable performance, award-winning technology and Changelight’s current experience with other Veeco TurboDisc MOCVD reactors. The Xiamen-based company has a large installed base of Veeco TurboDisc MaxBright® and K475™ MOCVD systems for high-volume LED production.

“Veeco’s TurboDisc platform has provided Changelight with increased LED wafer production and easy process transfer between systems saving us both time and money,” said Haifang Cai, General Manager and board member of Changelight. “By adding multiple EPIK 700 MOCVD systems to our fleet of reactors, we can ramp even more quickly, expand high-volume production with best-in-class wafer uniformity and reduce operating expenses.”

Introduced in 2014, the EPIK 700 MOCVD system is the LED industry’s highest productivity system reducing cost per wafer by up to 20 percent as compared to previous generation systems. Customers easily transfer processes from existing TurboDisc platforms to the new EPIK 700 MOCVD system for quick-start production of high-quality LEDs. In March, the 2015 Compound Semiconductor Industry Awards recognized Veeco and the EPIK 700 MOCVD system for the best compound semiconductor innovation of the year.

“Changelight’s decision to purchase multiple EPIK 700 systems is a great example of how Veeco enables customers to meet challenging production requirements while significantly reducing their cost per wafer,” said Jim Jenson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Veeco MOCVD Operations. “As the preferred MOCVD system for Changelight, the increased capacity and technology advantages of the EPIK 700 system will support their growth and position as a leading LED manufacturer for general lighting and display markets.”
