|The Effects of Loop Geometry on Life Test Durability for 10mil Al Wire Bonds|
|Keywords: Loop Geometry, Al Wire Bonds, Durability|
|The automotive market continues to drive toward smaller and more complex microelectronic assemblies while at the same time requiring longer life and durability. These often competing considerations are placing a demand on the designers to develop products with greater wire bond interconnect durability. This paper will discuss the effects of loop geometry on such things as life test durability, failure mode, and manufacturing considerations.|
