According to ledinsde, with the rapid development of emerging industries such as UV LED and mini / micro led, in the past two years, large domestic and foreign enterprises have purchased important MOCVD equipment, which has greatly promoted the development of MOCVD equipment and stimulated the market demand.
Yesterday (16) evening, MOCVD equipment manufacturer Zhongwei semiconductor equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “the company”) released a brilliant report card in 2019. During the reporting period, the company has developed high-temperature MOCVD equipment for deep UV LED growth, and is developing new MOCVD equipment for mini / micro led.
The company is mainly engaged in the R & D, production and sales of high-end semiconductor equipment, and mainly provides etching equipment, MOCVD equipment and other equipment for semiconductor products manufacturers such as integrated circuits, LED chips, MEMS and so on. Among them, MOCVD equipment is mainly used in the production of blue-green light and ultraviolet LED epitaxial chips and power devices, and has been put into mass production on the production line of leading customers in the industry.
During the reporting period, the revenue of the medium and micro companies reached 1.947 billion yuan, an increase of 18.77% year-on-year; the net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies was 189 million yuan, with a year-on-year increase of 107.51%.
It is worth noting that the company completed the development of high temperature MOCVD equipment suitable for the growth of deep UV LED last year, which can carry 18 2-inch epitaxial wafers, and is mainly used in the fields of deep UV LED, UV sterilization, industrial water purification, etc.
The company points out that the purchase amount of MOCVD equipment generally accounts for more than half of the total investment of LED production line, and it is the most important equipment in the manufacturing of LED epitaxial wafers. At present, MOCVD equipment is mainly used for the epitaxial growth of GaN based and GaAs based semiconductor materials, and GaN based LED MOCVD is mainly used to produce GaN based LED epitaxial wafers.
In addition to blue LED for general lighting and backlight display, MOCVD equipment can also manufacture Mini led and micro led for high-end display, UV LED for sterilization and air purification, and power devices for power electronics. With the application expansion and gradual promotion of these emerging fields, the market scale of GaN based MOCVD equipment is expected to further expand.
According to the report, the MOCVD equipment of the company has occupied a leading position in the global GaN based LED equipment market. Among them, the MOCVD equipment for manufacturing deep UV LED has been successfully verified in the industry-leading client. At the same time, the research and development of MOCVD equipment for mini LED production is in progress, and plans to promote relevant verification. In addition, MOCVD equipment for manufacturing micro led and power devices is also under development. (organized by ledinside Janice)
