SemiLEDs Corp. has established a new fabrication facility in Foshan, China, that will produce LED wafers and high power LED chips using the company's patented vertical LED on metal technology.

The development for the new facility will be in three stages. The initial stage involves an investment of $96 million, set to be ready for full scale production by October 2010. Initial monthly production capacity at the facility will be 20 million 1mm x 1mm LED chips per month. Investment and production at the facility are expected to grow 3x within a period of three years.

SemiLEDs chairman and CEO, Trung Doan said, "Developing a fabrication facility in the NanHai Economic Development Zone will allow SemiLEDs to be in the center of the LED industry in China. This is especially true since NanHai has invested $2 billion to support the industry's development. The government provides great support and combined with the local industry it makes a perfect match. The presence of SemiLEDs in China at such a large scale is a further proof of trust from customers for SemiLEDs products and technology."

The establishment of the production facility in China allows SemiLEDs the opportunity to provide further service and support to a growing number of companies involved in solid-state lighting throughout China while further increasing production to meet rapidly growing global demand. SemiLEDs is a major LED chip supplier to many packaging companies in China focusing on solid state lighting such as street lights, commercial and residential lighting.

SemiLEDs patented and proprietary LED chip design features a vertical LED structure with a copper alloy base, which provides unparalleled advantages in thermal management and optical efficacy.
