Epistar Orders Multiple Veeco EPIK 700 MOCVD Systems

Veeco Instruments announced that Epistar has ordered multiple TurboDisc® EPIK™700 Gallium Nitride (GaN) Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) Systems for the production of light emitting diodes (LEDs).  The Veeco systems will be used to meet demand for various applications.  

“The improved demand of solid state lighting combined with the need to compete in a competitive market dictates we choose the most productive and most cost-efficient MOCVD platform in the industry,” said MJ Jou, President, Epistar Corporation.  “Veeco has been our supplier of choice dating back to their innovative K465i system.  After adopting their latest EPIK platform, we have achieved superior yield results and lowered manufacturing costs.  The addition of these new EPIK MOCVD systems will help advance our production goals and improve our product competitiveness.”

Based on Veeco’s proven TurboDisc technology and the proprietary Uniform FlowFlange™, the award-winning EPIK 700 MOCVD system enables customers to achieve an improved cost per wafer savings compared to previous MOCVD systems through improved wafer uniformity, reduced operating expenses and increased productivity.  

“We believe that a leader such as Epistar ramping production to meet demand of LEDs is a positive sign for the industry as a whole,” said James T. Jenson, Senior Vice President, Veeco MOCVD Operations.  “Veeco’s superior MOCVD technology is the number one choice of manufacturers looking for a competitive edge in a market that seems to be turning upward again.  We look forward to supporting Epistar’s future MOCVD requirements as they continue their growth plans.”
