announced that HLJ Technology Co., Ltd.
, a Taiwanese VCSEL epitaxy and chip manufacturer, has ordered multiple AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD sets to increase its wafer capacity as well as its epitaxial wafer size production line from 4-inch to 6-inch for high-volume manufacturing of vertical-cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL). AIXTRON’s fully automated Planetary Reactor systems will be supplied in 8x6-inch configuration in the course of Q4/2018 and beyond.
“In order to meet fast growing market demand for VCSEL both at epi wafer and chip levels, we decided to expand to 6-inch epi wafer manufacturing,” Dr. Larry Lai, GM of HLJ, said. “Starting from Q4/2018, two sets of newly ordered AIXTRON MOCVD systems are scheduled to arrive at HLJ.”
