Veeco Instruments Inc. announced the introduction of its new TurboDisc K-series metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) GaN platform for the production of high-brightness LEDs (HB-LEDs).

According to Veeco, the new MOCVD platform includes the K300 and K465 models, offering a modular, upgradeable path to higher throughput, larger diameter reactor chamber and reduced cost of ownership. The K465 features the company's advanced reactor technology, offering approximately 50 percent greater throughput compared to currently available competitive MOCVD production tools.

"Veeco's new multigenerational platform and larger reactor capability will give our HB-LED customers a long-term cost of ownership advantage plus the technology to achieve their LED brightness roadmap objectives, " said Edward Braun, chairman and CEO of Veeco.

"Our new modular system, which is extendable to larger reactors, is the only platform capable of continuous operation available on the market today," said Piero Sferlazzo, VP, general manager of Veeco's MOCVD operations. "Couple that with the excellent uniformity and repeatability of the TurboDisc technology, our customers now have a true, multi-generational, high-volume production MOCVD system to meet their needs today and in the future."
