Northern Microelectronics: Domestic upstream high-end equipment manufacturers will be unveiled at 2012 Gaogong LED Exhibition

"In the first half of this year, Northern Microelectronics' revenue still achieved a 25% year-on-year growth, and the market share of new capacity still remained above 50%." Recently, Ji Ankuan, vice president of Northern Microelectronics Marketing, directed to "High-tech LED" reporter It is said that compared with the second half of last year, although the investment fever of domestic LED equipment has begun to decrease this year, various companies have begun to cautiously expand production, but North Microelectronics still withstands market pressure, attaches importance to customer demand, attaches importance to market changes, and strengthens products. power enhanced.

The main reason is that since 2010, ELEDE 330, a newly designed inductively coupled high-density plasma etching machine designed for the etch application of LED production, has maintained a good market performance as the company's main product. .

Recently, the latest iTops sputter device developed by North Microelectronics has been officially released. It is understood that the device is applied to a sputter device of high-performance ITO transparent conductive film in the manufacture of high-brightness/ultra-high-brightness LED chips. Compared with the conventional method of preparing an ITO layer by evaporation, it can significantly improve the brightness of the LED chip. The product is compatible with a wide range of substrates, including 2-4 inches of sapphire, silicon carbide and silicon, and has a strong technology expansion capability. At present, the equipment has been recognized by many domestic customers, and has already received orders from domestic mainstream production lines.

Although the first half of the year, the northern microelectronics equipment has a good performance. However, Ji Ankuan said that in the second half of this year, the competition in the equipment market is still very fierce. At the same time, customers' requirements for equipment performance and after-sales service will be more stringent.

At present, the graphic substrate (PSS) technology can effectively shorten the difference between the technical level of domestic LED chip companies and the products of international manufacturers. Therefore, the demand for PSS substrates in the domestic market will gradually increase in the future, and will drive The enthusiasm of sapphire substrate manufacturers to develop PSS substrates. This is indeed a good development opportunity for the ELEDE330 ICP plasma etching machine of Northern Microelectronics.

Ji Ankuan revealed that this year, in addition to promoting equipment to local LED companies, North Microelectronics is gradually exploring the Chinese Taiwan market. "At present, this work is progressing smoothly, and the technological level of the company's equipment has been recognized by many Taiwanese customers."
