not the wire bonder but the bond pads....and in that case not easily solved...there must be some unexpected material on the bond pads that disallows the wire from sticking to pad...not so easy to solve
Bill , 3 or 4 years ago , i would have agreed , but at this point , they bonded far too many pieces for this to
be a bigger deal than incoming defective wiring , or maybe too much heat used to bond , which can weaken
the pads .. if the breaks were at the pads , were they the result in a weakness in the substrate ? or the
diffusion of the metals used to make the pads ....
HAH .. i've worked directly with a lot more bonding operations than you will ever see .. this whole deal
could be a "friendly " thing , where the customer discovered some new kink and the information will
help EMAN build a more robust product .. this isn't a science thing , but more mechanical ... mgmt did
say in the 8K that this problem should be fixed quickly ...
unexpected material on the pad ??? okay , fair enough , but that's easy to verify and probably very
easy to fix ...
Using your expertise , kindly give a process flow .. is there a cleaning process prior to bond ?? if so ,
maybe a batch or 2 missed the clean , maybe the cleaning tool wasn't pm'd or cleaned ... IF its something
on the pad , then it's contamination .. should be very easy to find the source , granted , the fix may
not be easy , or may be expensive ... again .. why , after so many years of bonding , does this
suddenly show up ... bonding is not science .... .g
are you serious? Sticking a wire to a pad that every of millions of electronic manufactures do (and Emagin did for years) suddenly becomes a rocket science that is 'not so easy to solve'.
And what about your early comment bringing SNUP up even though SNUP has nothing to do with this?
Your superiority complex got the better of you so you post utter garbage.
beyond .. nice point , but i would not rule out something about the SNUP , however , they would
not have included a statement in the 8K that the problem should be fixed soon ... so i doubt it's
the SNUP ... once the sources is identified , the fix should be quick and easy , as you stated ,
wire bonding is not science , it's just a mechanical process .. .g
Bill and scam are miserable people seeking company ... g
