AIXaTECH is a large-scale manufacturer of single crystal AlN stencils dedicated to the efficient gallium nitride growth of LEDs and power electronics. AIXaTECH currently develops and manufactures new epitaxial systems for the growth of wide bandgap semiconductor materials. AIXaTECH's patented cryogenic deposition technology provides an excellent cost base and functional advantage over traditional methods of growing a GaN-based layer on a sapphire substrate in a standard MOCVD reactor. The currently commercially available function is the production of low temperature templates for the Starting Layer. This step can be implemented in an MOCVD reactor to shorten the entire MOCVD process by 2 to 3 hours. The project has completed a semi-automatic prototype that can carry a substrate size of 600X8000 mm2 and can produce 150 wafers of 2-inch wafers at one time. The fully automated production line in the proposal can carry a substrate size of 1400X2000 mm2, and can produce 900 pieces of 2-inch wafers at one time.
