Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. (KLIC) ("K&S") today announced the launch of its new ACS ProTM Capillary, for advanced copper wire bonding applications.
The new ACS ProTM Capillary provides excellent bond-ability control with fine wire diameters. Using advanced material development and an innovative design, the quality and strength of both the 1st (Intermetallic Coverage) and 2nd bond are maintained over the capillary’s usable life.
The ACS ProTM Capillary significantly improves design dynamics, and extends the copper process window with enhancement of process portability and response consistency. The consistent performance of the capillary eases the production fan-out process. The improved wear resistance material used for the new ACS ProTM Capillary also enhances workability to help drive productivity.
Nelson Wong, Kulicke & Soffa’s Vice President, Wire Bond Solutions Business Unit, remarked, “Kulicke & Soffa continues to leverage its strong R&D process knowledge and extensive experience in delivering copper capillaries. With ACS ProTM, customers will benefit from the excellent bond-ability control, consistent performance, while also lowering their cost of ownership. The ACS ProTM is designed to improve copper bond quality and process stability enabling process portability and response uniformity.”
The ACS ProTM Capillary will debut at the Semicon Taiwan show at the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall from September 4-6, 2013.
