(ULED), a China-based joint venture between United Microelectronics Corp (UMC) and Epistar, placed a multi-tool order for Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO) TurboDisc K465i metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems. The systems will be installed at ULED’s facility in Jining City, China for its high-brightness light emitting diode (HB-LED) manufacturing ramp.

"The K465i provides the process performance and lowest cost of ownership needed to advance ULED’s position as a provider of LED devices for various lighting applications," said Dr. Tzu-Chi Wen, VP, Epi factory of United LED, commented.

Bill Miller, PhD, EVP, Compound Semiconductor and head of Veeco’s MOCVD Operations noted that the China LED sector is growing, and high yields are neccessary for competitiveness.

With high uniformity and run-to-run repeatability, the K465i suits high-volume LED manufacturing. The K465i provides ease-of-tuning for fast process optimization on wafer sizes up to 8" and fast tool recovery time after maintenance.

United LED Corporation, a joint venture between United Microelectronics Corp and Epistar, designs, manufactures, and sells Light Emitting Diodes (LED) chips. The company is based in Shandong, China.
