“Our RF microwave device business operation unit will be using the new systems to support our latest capacity expansion designed to meet ever higher demand from customers,” said Neil Chen, VPEC vice president. “We have been using the AIX 2600G3 for more than ten years now, with our last multiple systems order having been completed in 2010. This last production capacity addition has put us in the solid commercial position to invest once more in AIXTRON’s high quality equipment.”
VPEC chose the AIXTRON systems due to their robustness and extended uptime, along with high throughput. “AIXTRON excels at supplying equipment with these features, along with prompt service and process support, all of which are vital for our successful business,” Chen added.
“Driven by the demand for mobile phones and Wi-Fi, the need for RF power amplifiers based on compound semiconductor heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) continues to rise and microwave device makers are presently adding MOCVD production capacities,” said Dr. Christian Geng, AIXTRON´s vice president Southeast Asia.
