Carlsbad, CA – July 3, 2012 – Palomar Technologies, the world-leading provider of precision microelectronics and optoelectronic packaging systems, today announced the company will be exhibiting live demonstrations on the 3800 Die Bonder and 8000 Wire Bonder at SEMICON West 2012, July 10-12 in San Francisco, CA, in booth #6157.

The 3800 Die Bonder has a large 35.5" x 20" large work area to accommodate various presentation tools, a steady state and a pulsed heat system for eutectic bonding, multiple dispense technologies, die ejectors and Cognex Vision System on a single platform. The sturdy mechanical structure, process camera, quiet linear motors, 0.1μm linear XY encoders and direct measure 0.00023 degree rotary encoder are some of the sophisticated features available on this ultra-flexible die attach system.

8000 wire bonder head tool turretThe 8000 Wire Bonder will feature a fully automated wire bond, stitch-bond, chain bond and ball bump demonstration program, showcasing the bonder’s diverse application packaging capabilities. A ball bumper and stud bumper configuration of the 8000 Wire Bonder is a unique feature of this system—the wire bonder is the only available system that can produce co-planarized gold bumps in one step. The 8000 Wire Bonder is capable of deep access wire bonding up to 13.5mm. This fully automatic, thermosonic, high-speed ball-and-stitch gold bumper improves production yields and eliminates sources of variation in microelectronics packaging processes.
