WIRE BONDING EQUIPMENTWIRE BONDING EQUIPMENTWire Bonder SubsystemsTo be able to accomplish wire bonding process at high speed, very fine scale and with highest reliability, the design of the wire bonders have gone through many years of innovation. An automatic ball bonder is a precision machine with many advanced hardware, software, servo control algorithms, vision algorithm, and advanced process controls. A picture of a K&S fully automatic bonder is shown in Fig. 19.7. Some of the key subsystems are labeled. The main subsystems and their functionality are explained below.
