MOCVD Process Tool Captures Prestigious Silver Prize at
15th Annual China International Industry Fair
SHANGHAI, China – November 21, 2013—In the latest recognition of its technology leadership, Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. (AMEC) captured a Silver Prize at the 15th Annual China International Industry Fair (CIIF) held earlier this month in Shanghai. AMEC was acknowledged for its MOCVD process tool, Prismo D-Blue™, which was introduced last March. It’s the only such process tool among the award-winners. MOCVD technology is essential for high-volume manufacturing of High-brightness Light Emitting Diodes (HB-LEDs).
AMEC joins winners in award categories that include Gold [4 winners], Silver [10 winners] and Bronze [14 winners], as well as awards for Innovation. They include China Aerospace Technology & Science Corp., Huawei, ZPMC, ABB Engineering (Shanghai) Ltd. and Intel, among others. Collectively, 217 products from 167 companies and institutions were nominated for an award.
Silver Prize winners are selected for new products or technologies that are unprecedented in China, or rank as highly advanced in international markets. Products must be competitive, commercially available, carry social benefits, and promise value for future scientific and technical innovation. Most important, the product must be supported by strong Intellectual Property (IP). Only products with independently validated IP are considered for the award. Of 10 Silver Prize winners, AMEC was ranked first after strict review procedures.
Leading China-based LED manufacturer, Epilight Technology Co., Ltd. is an early user of AMEC’s MOCVD technology. In congratulating AMEC for its win, Epilight VP of Technology and Quality Dr. MaoSheng Hao said, “AMEC’s MOCVD tool has exceeded our expectations and meets the performance standard set by entrenched MOCVD tools. It is production worthy and lives up to its performance promise. We are pleased to see the technology recognized at CIIF, and we look forward to deploying it in our LED manufacturing lines.”
AMEC COO and GM of the MOCVD Product Business Division, Dr. Zhiyou Du said: “We are proud to receive this honor. Our Prismo D-Blue tool is the result of dedicated efforts by our MOCVD team, as well as close collaboration with our suppliers and customers, like Epilight. This collective innovation produced a system that is valued by customers for its promise to increase productivity on their LED manufacturing lines, while also reducing costs.”
Founded in 1999, CIIF is China’s leading conference focused on equipment manufacturing in China. It is co-organized by eight Chinese Ministries and the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government.
Prismo D-Blue is trademarked by AMEC.
