Anyone want to buy a AIX 2800G4 HT?

No purchase is a secret. Well, maybe a few certain  x-rated unmentionables or certain silicon pieces  meant to be

One purchase in question was that of one AIX 2800G4 HT, 11×4 inch MOCVD tool. So I ask you, what would you do with one AIX 2800G4 HT, 11×4 inch MOCVD tool. First of all, what the heck is it?

Here’s a photo I borrowed using Google’s image search:

Actually, Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) located in Freiburg, Germany ordered the AIX 2800G4 HT, 11×4 inch MOCVD tool. Apparently,  they will be using the reactor for GaN (Gallium Nitride) on SiC (silicon carbide) for high power, high frequency applications to enable commercialization of GaN devices in the near future.

It was said that the order was placed in the fourth quarter of 2009, just one quarter behind Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation‘s (MCC’s) order in the third quarter of 2009. MCC requested their order in a 42×2 inch wafer configuration and will be used for the production of InGaN (indium gallium nitride) – based white UHB (Ultra-High Bright) LEDs (light emitting diodes). MCC plans to start rolling out world-class white LEDs for display backlighting, solid-state lighting and other leading edge applications. Yay! More cool LEDs.

Closely following the LED industry, I caught the news from a tweet from @ledinside. Link to their article is here.

LEDs, and more commonly OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) and AMOLEDs (active matrix organic light emitting diode) are hot topics associated with mobile device screens. A few Android phones are touting AMOLED screen displays. In fact, there was an article that put a few people’s “boxers” in an uproar, so much so that they had to write a response article here.

And that’s why I am writing this post. The LED industry will boom in 2010 with a ton of amazing products that will be utilized and enjoyed by all, whether conscious of it or not.

Did you hear about the augmented contact lenses with 100’s of LEDs?

I talked about it in the following youtube video:
