|Fine Wedge Bond Applications Survey and Process Tools|
|Keywords: Fine Wedge Bond, RF Package, Ribbon Bond|
|Modern wedge bonders have evolved since their early inception in 1957. Although the dominant share of wire bonds are produced by ball bonders, there are several markets and technologies which require wedge bonding. There two major segmentation categories in wedge bonding; 1) Manual/Automatic and 2) Fine/Heavy. The focus of this extended abstract is on Automatic Fine Wedge Bonding and will cover a range of application examples that help process engineers determine machine configuration and features available to solve their wedge bond assembly needs.|
