WIN Semiconductors has placed an order with AIXTRON for its AIX 2600G3
IC epitaxy reactor that will be used for the development and
manufacture of triple junction solar cells on germanium wafers for
terrestrial Solar Cell applications. It will be installed in WIN
Semiconductors’ facility in Kuei Shan Hsiang, Taiwan.
“Our decision for the AIXTRON equipment was confirmed by the fact that
the major players in the solar cell epitaxy market in Europe are
successfully using the AIXTRON MOCVD systems,” stated a spokesperson
for WIN Semiconductors. “We are convinced of this track record of
AIXTRON tools in solar cell manufacture in Europe and are confident
that the new system will clear the way for our success in the solar
WIN Semiconductors is diversifying into solar cell manufacturing.
