Rubicon Technology Opens Sapphire Polishing Facility in Malaysia
Dec 20, 2010 Rubicon Technology, a provider of sapphire substrates and products to the LED, RFIC, Semiconductor, and Optical industries, has announced the opening of the company's first facility outside of the United States in Penang, Malaysia. The facility will be responsible for the labor-intensive crystal polishing processes significantly expanding Rubicon's capacity for high quality, large diameter polished wafer production.
Rubicon's Malaysia facility combined with Rubicon's new crystal growth facility in Batavia, IL - both leveraging large-diameter sapphire -- have been established to deliver the sapphire capacity necessary to support the growing demand for LEDs in the consumer electronics and general lighting industries.
Rubicon currently has the capability to produce polished sapphire wafers up to twelve inches in diameter. The transition to large 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.
