Rubicon Technology to Showcase Large-Diameter Patterned Sapphire Substrates (PSS) for the LED Market at LED Korea 2014
BENSENVILLE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:RBCN), a leading provider of sapphire
substrates and products to the LED, semiconductor, and optical markets,
today announced that it will showcase large-diameter
patterned sapphire substrates (PSS) as well as its line of
6"polished sapphire wafers for the LED
industry at LED
Korea 214 at COEX, Seoul, Korea, February 12-14, 2014. Rubicon will
exhibit its line of sapphire products in Booth #4707.
Technology innovation is helping companies in the LED supply chain
prepare for dramatic growth in LED lighting. Most high-brightness LED
manufacturers etch a pattern into the sapphire wafers in order to both
improve epitaxial growth and extract more light from each chip.
Patterned sapphire substrates have been available for purchase in
smaller diameters, but Rubicon is the first to offer highly customizable
6" and 8" PSS. Rubicon is providing LED chip manufacturers with a
ready-made source of PSS in 4", 6" and 8" -diameters to serve the needs
of the rapidly growing LED general lighting industry.
"Rubicon Technology continues to pioneer innovations in sapphire
substrates," said Raja M. Parvez, President and CEO, Rubicon Technology.
"As the world's most experienced provider of 6-inch sapphire wafers,
Rubicon is uniquely positioned to drive the evolution of substrates -
patterning large diameter sapphire substrates. This advance helps LED
manufacturers gain the efficiency of larger diameters, combined with the
industry's most precise patterning capability, all from a supplier known
for quality and reliability at high volume."
Rubicon offers fully customizable sub-micron patterning capability with
tight dimensional tolerances, within ±0.1 µm. With an edge exclusion
zone as small as 1 mm, Rubicon offers LED chip manufacturers more usable
area to maximize the number of chips per wafer. Patterning is available
in a range of shapes including cone, dome and pyramid, and in a range of
Rubicon will have a number of sapphire products for the LED market on
display in Booth #4707 including sapphire cores and ingots and large
diameter wafers ranging in size from 4 inches to 6- and 8- inches as
well as information about patterned large-diameter sapphire substrates.
