Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC) is to install its mass-production GaN MOCVD system UR25K (6-inch X 7 wafers) at Epistar Corporation (Epistar) for the development of light emitting diodes (LEDs) grown on 6-inch sapphire substrates.
With the two companies’ foresight into the 6-inch LED market, TNSC will be working with Epistar to improve the hardware aspect of the equipment.
Epistar and TNSC, respectively, hope to accomplish the goal of improving and developing 6-inch LED and mass production MOCVD (metalorganic chemical vapour deposition).
Located in the Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park, Taiwan, Epistar Corporation manufactures high brightness LEDs of compact size, low power consumption, and long operation life. The company has successfully commercialised the full spectrum range of high brightness LEDs, while TNSC started its MOCVD business in 1983 and has considerable capability in this area in addition to its industrial gas expertise.
