Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. Key Developments

Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. to Debut MOCVD Platform for Low-Cost High-Volume Manufacture of HB-LEDS, with Extendibility to GaN-on-Silicon Applications

Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. will make its market debut with a new multi-reactor Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) cluster tool. The Prismo D-Blue MOCVD platform enables high-volume manufacturing of sophisticated GaN, InGaN and AlGaN ultrathin layered structures required for high-brightness LEDs. With precise parameter control, full automation and an unusually compact design, it's a new-generation MOCVD tool built for today's LED manufacturing must-haves: high productivity, high yields and lowest possible cost-of-ownership. A Prismo tool has already been shipped to a customer's LED production line in China. Hardware Highlights: The patented architecture can accommodate up to four reactors. Each reactor can be controlled independently—an inventive design that enables exceptional manufacturing flexibility. It is the only tool of its kind with this capability. This means it can process in parallel or sequential mode, which reduces cross-contamination and ensures the high crystalline quality required for advanced LED applications. The tool's footprint efficiency is unmatched—nearly 30% smaller than competitive single-reactor systems—making the Prismo a smarter fit for today's LED fabs.
