Major Asian display manufacturer purchases AIXTRON system
AIXTRON SE, a leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry based in Herzogenrath, Germany, has sold the first Optacap-200 encapsulation tool to a major Asian display manufacturer. The standalone R&D system that handles substrate sizes of 200x200mm was ordered in the third quarter of 2015 and is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2016.
The innovative Optacap plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) technology enables the deposition of highly flexible and effective barrier films for thin-film encapsulation of OLED display, OLED lighting, organic photovoltaic and flexible electronic devices.
“Thin-film encapsulation is an essential step within the OLED manufacturing process. Therefore, we are delighted to be able to provide an innovative solution to the industry which delivers excellent barrier films at high throughput. This solution contributes to a significant reduction of manufacturing costs for the critical encapsulation process step within the production of flexible as well as rigid OLED devices”, says Andreas Toennis, Chief Technology Officer of AIXTRON.
