Due to the continuing growth of the LED market and demand for larger wafers, we are seeing a substantial increase in the sale of system solutions for the preparation of Sapphire, Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates.
LEDs are typically manufactured on Sapphire substrates, around 90% of the blue LEDs currently in production, the remaining 10% are made from SiC substrates. It is estimated that there will be a 20% year on year demand for Sapphire substrates for LED fabs.
To meet the needs of our clients processing these hard materials, we have developed a high speed lapping and polishing system.
The high speed system is ideal for research and small scale production laboratories, offering a flexible, reliable and low cost solution for the processing and analysis of hard materials such as:
- Silicon Carbide (SiC)
- Gallium Nitride (GaN)
- Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (LTCC)
- High Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (HTCC)
