OSRAM Opto Semiconductors GmbH has signed an agreement naming Veeco as the supplier for Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) and Precision Surface Processing (PSP) systems for high-volume LED production in Kulim. According to the agreement, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors has ordered multiple TurboDiscÂ® EPIKÂ®700 Gallium Nitride (GaN) MOCVD, and WaferStormÂ® 3306 PSP Wet Process systems. The WaferStorm PSP Wet Process Systems ordered by OSRAM have a solvent-based platform that integrates Veeco’s proprietary ImmJETâ¢ technology. The combination gives better yield and incurs lesser chemical costs than the conventional methods for the process of metal lift-off and other such back-end compound semiconductor processes.
“We are pleased that OSRAM Opto Semiconductors has selected Veeco as a partner in their Diamond initiative, a clear indication that Veeco’s LED manufacturing solutions are best-in-class at lowering manufacturing costs and driving high levels of productivity,” said William J. Miller, Ph.D., President at Veeco.
