Osram Selects SUSS For HB-LEDs Manufacturing

In both the second and third quarter of 2006 Osram Opto Semiconductors placed additional follow-on orders for SUSS LithoFab200 Clusters, which are specifically used in volume production for the manufacturing of High Brightness / High Power Light Emitting Diodes (LED).

The SUSS LithoFab200 cluster system consists of coat, bake, align, expose and develop cells and has been selected for its ability to safely handle fragile substrates as well as for its high productivity and for its high yield at low cycle times. In recent years HB-LEDs have entered into many consumer products such as televisions, PC displays, digital cameras, cell phones, automobiles and traffic lights, while remarkable progress in LED efficiency, lifetime and total lumen output has opened up the possibility of using LEDs as sources of general lighting.

According to Strategies Unlimited, a California market research company, the general illumination market is expected to become one of the biggest potential markets for HB-LEDs in the years to come.

Gerhard Maihöfner, Vice President Osram Opto Semiconductors said, "We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with SUSS MicroTec. The new generations of advanced High Brightness LEDs are sold in a highly competitive market environment, and we therefore demand the best possible quality, precision and cost of ownership from our production equipment. Our work with the LithoFab200 System is a vital part of our continuing efforts to provide our customers with cutting edge LED solutions. In order to meet the aggressive schedules for cost control in all aspects of the LED manufacturing process we have to rely on suppliers with trusted manufacturing capacity and performance records in the field of production. We use SUSS MicroTec equipment in production for several applications and we respect SUSS' capability and depth of know-how in the field."

"Osram Opto Semiconductor's success in the field of high brightness, high power LED's is highly regarded in the industry", says Rolf Wolf, managing director of SUSS MicroTec Lithography Division. "We are committed to support Osram with our LithoFab200, a cluster which enables the streamlining of the LED production process by automating and integrating all photolithography process steps, namely coat, bake, expose and develop, in one modular cluster system."
