OBDUCAT, the leading supplier of lithography solutions based on NanoImprint Lithography and Electron Beam Lithography, is pleased to announce the receipt of an order from Luxtaltek Corporation worth 22,5 MSEK. The order concerns one Sindre® 400 system and one Sindre® 60 system, to be used for mass production of photonic crystal LEDs. An agreement has also been signed concerning the supply of consumables used in the NIL systems and the potential value of this agreement is up to 80 MSEK during the next 3-5 years, in addition to the above mentioned order value.
The purchase order concerns one Sindre® 60 system to be delivered during September 2008 and one Sindre® 400 system by end of Q1, 2009. The fully automated Sindre® 400 will have production capacity of 30 wafers per hour for any wafer size between 2" and 4".
Luxtaltek Corporation, a Taiwan based world class provider of high brightness LED wafers, Photonic Crystal LED chips and LED modules, was founded by two leading LED companies in Taiwan: Taiwan Oasis Technology Corporation and Uni-light Touchtek Corporation. With well-developed state of the art production techniques, Luxtaltek will deliver the most reliable, high efficiency GaN LED wafers and chips to the market in Q4, 2008.
