Rubicon Technology Transcends LED Industry with Innovative 12-Inch Sapphire Wafers

Jan 27, 2011 Rubicon Technology, Inc., a provider of sapphire substrates and products to the LED, RFIC, Semiconductor, and Optical industries, has announced the production of 12-inch polished wafers, the largest high-quality, sapphire wafer ready for production of LEDs. Rubicon now offers a complete range of high quality sapphire substrates including two-, three- and four-inch core, and six-, eight- and 12-inch wafers.

Rubicon is uniquely positioned to deliver the sapphire capacity necessary to support the growing demand for LEDs in the consumer electronics and general lighting industries.
Rubicon's recent build-out of infrastructure optimizes the company's ability to make affordable, high quality, large diameter sapphire wafers in large volumes for customers worldwide. While the Batavia facility leverages the stability and lower cost of valuable resources such as power, the new facility in Malaysia leverages the location to further lower costs and bring extensive experience in polishing large diameter wafers closer to the LED, consumer electronics and general lighting manufacturers in Asia.

The transition to larger diameter wafers in LED production has started. Earlier in 2010, Rubicon announced that the company entered into a $71 million agreement with a major LED chip manufacturer for which Rubicon will provide six-inch polished substrates. Companies such as Philips Lumiled and Lextar Electronics have announced six-inch production of LED wafers built on sapphire.
