“Brightness, contrast, switching speed and power efficiency in display panels for smartwatches, mobile devices, AR/VR applications and large televisions are driving increased demand for microLED solutions,” stated Francis Taroni, COO of Aledia. “As our process tool of record, we believe Veeco’s Propel 300 HVM platform is uniquely positioned to deliver outstanding process yields while achieving the world’s highest volume production. Their history of supporting our innovation was a driving force in our selection.”



MicroLEDs are emerging as a next-generation display technology due to potential for higher resolution, brightness and reliability. According to 2020 TrendForce estimates, microLED wafer production is expected to increase from 74,000 wafers in 2021 to over 5 million wafers in 2024.



“We are proud to be selected again by Aledia, a true pioneer in advanced display technologies, to deliver the industry’s first 300mm MOCVD tool to support their microLED production ramp,” commented Scott Kroeger, Veeco’s chief marketing officer. “Veeco’s dedication to combining compound semiconductor expertise with semiconductor-scale manufacturing is evident in this EFEM-enabled, 300mm wafer capable platform. It’s embedded in our DNA to work closely with leading-edge companies like Aledia to develop the right solutions at production scale, and we are focused on bringing our unique capabilities to help enable the future of microLED manufacturing.”



Veeco’s single wafer Propel 300 HVM GaN MOCVD System is designed as a unique, high-volume-manufacturing single wafer reactor cluster system for GaN-based advanced displays, power, RF and photonics devices. Featuring a single-wafer reactor platform, the system is capable of producing best-in-class high quality epitaxy film performance on 300mm wafers for exceptional uniformity, repeatability and yield. The Propel 300 HVM system is configurable with modular cluster chambers for maximum productivity and flexibility.
