The Strasbaugh 7AF wafer grinder is an advanced wafer grinding solution for semiconductor, data storage, SOI, LED, and a variety of R&D applications. The 7AF delivers high volume throughput with superior finish and thickness control. The force sensitive mechanics and advanced control system allows adaptive grinding that is determined by grinding wheel dynamics resulting in reduced sub-surface damage and increased product yield.

The unique mechanical design of the 7AF includes two air bearing grind spindles and two air bearing work holding spindles to allow simultaneious course and fine grind steps. Each wafer remains on the same work spindle for both grind steps thus reducing wafer handling and increasing wafer throughput.

Axus Partners with CP Display to Accelerate Monolithic 1080p MicroLED Displays to Mainstream AR

Axus partners with Compound Photonics US Corporation to accelerate sub 5 µm pixel microLED development to the mass market.

Axus and CP are partnering to integrate critical wafer-scale processes needed for mass-production scale up of CP’s 3 µm pixel, 0.26” diagonal, 1080p microLED displays for the next generation AR glasses. Specifically, Axus will deploy its state-of-the-art Capstone CMP system with integrated post-CMP clean to enable wafer planarization and surface preparation process solutions for successful wafer-scale bonding of microLED wafers to high-performance CMOS backplanes.



Axus/Plessey Partnership

Axus partners with Plessey Semiconductors to help bring high-performance GaN-on-Silicon monolithic microLED technology to the mass market.

Using tooling from Axus and optimised processes, Plessey Semiconductors has achieved a successful wafer to wafer bond of a 1080p microLED display 0.26” diagonal to a 3-micron pixel-pitch backplane. Much smaller than the 0.7" diagonal 8-micron pixel-pitch active-matrix display previously demonstrated.
