Lower deposition temperatures, lower energy and process gas consumption, faster production and combination of new materials for wide-bandgap semiconductors. ELEMENT 3—5 leaps epitaxy to the next level.
Novel design combined with our innovative in-line manufacturing concept is the basis for scalable mass-production and significant increase in efficiency.
ELEMENT 3—5 sets new standards in the manufacturing process mode of semiconductors. For this purpose, we set up the wafer vertically and thus achieve the greatest possible homogeneity and particle-free production.
Our unique process method enables deposition of monocrystalline structures of the highest quality at temperatures below 300 °C. Thus, the production is much more environmentally friendly, energy-saving and also more cost-efficient than the conventional process techniques.
We are opening up completely new opportunities for the semiconductor industry. Due to process temperatures below 300 °C, temperature-sensitive substrates can be deployed, materials beyond the 3rd and 5th main groups can be deposited and new stacks can be built in.
ELEMENT 3—5 technology relies on intelligent plasma and renders the use of toxic gases in semiconductor production obsolete. Operation and maintenance is much easier and, together with energy savings of up to 90 percent in production, we significantly reduce the environmental impact.
AIXaTECH GmbH – the predecessor of ELEMENT 3-5 GmbH - has raised a double-digit Euro million amount in a Series A financing round led by AVV Investment GmbH. The company is now able to start serial production of its innovative epitaxy systems for wide-bandgap semiconductors.
ELEMENT 3—5 is scaling up serial production of its epitaxy system ACCELERATOR 3500K. Buying motive on customer side are reduced costs in combination with a significantly increased layer homogeneity, environmental friendly, energy efficient and a reduction of the processing time within the expensive MOCVD reactors.
ELEMENT 3-5 GmbH moves into its new headquarter in Baesweiler and it remains loyal to the Aachen Region. The new building was ready for occupancy on 1 October 2022. The new business address is Robert-Koch-Str. 6a in 52499 Baesweiler.
ELEMENT 3—5 is pleased to present for the first time at CS International the ACCELERATOR 3500K - the innovative production system for WBG semiconductors based on the novel low-temperature epitaxy (LTE).
Becoming a SEMI Associate Member enables ELEMENT 3-5 GmbH to play a more prominent role in forging future international standards and complex technology roadmaps in semiconductor industries and participate in collaborative research to help accelerate new product development.
In view of the outstanding contribution in the field of alternative growth methods for wide bandgap semiconductor materials ELEMENT 3—5 is invited to give a presentation at the Annual World Congress on Advanced Materials in Tokyo, Japan.
