Jiang Su Can Yang (FOREPI) orders more MOCVD tools from AIXTRON for GaN
HB-LED boost

Aachen/Germany, April 27, 2010 - AIXTRON AG (FWB: AIXA, ISIN DE000A0WMPJ6,
ISIN DE000A1DAHX7; NASDAQ: AIXG, ISIN US0096061041) announced today a new
order for more Planetary and Showerhead HB-GaN LED MOCVD tools from Jiang
Su Can Yang, a joint venture with Formosa Epitaxy Inc. (FOREPI), an
established AIXTRON customer and one of Taiwan's leading manufacturers of
ultra high brightness (UHB) LEDs. Jiang Su Can Yang placed the order in the
fourth quarter of 2009. The Planetary Reactor(R) systems in a 11x4 inch
configuration and Close Coupled Showerhead(R) tools in a 31x2 inch
configuration will be delivered between the second and the fourth quarter
of 2010. The local AIXTRON support team will commission the new reactors at
the new FOREPI purpose-built facility in Jiang Su province, PR China.

Dr. Frank Chien, CEO FOREPI comments, 'We have aggressive plans for our
joint venture in Jiang Su province, PR China with a total of fifty systems
to be in place within the next three years. The excellent performance we
have received from our existing Planetary and Showerhead systems from
AIXTRON at FOREPI in Taiwan have translated directly into high quality
product performance, yield, and cost of ownership.

Specifically, the new reactors in this latest order are destined not only
for a new facility but also a new application research topic. Therefore, as
these plans unfold the new joint venture in China will allow us to be very
close to many of our customers increasing production capacity and to meet
their future needs in new device technology. Working in partnership with
AIXTRON's support team we can bring these tools onstream quickly ramping up
HB GaN LED epiwafer production in response to strong local market demand.'
