High Reliability,
High Quality
Power Modules

Introducing the SST 8300 Series Automated Vacuum Pressure Soldering System.

Specifically designed to deliver the highest quality electronic packaging for power modules, the system provides a highly reliable solder connection with a better than industry standard void rate – key to delivering high reliability power modules for automotive and commercial applications.

The 8300 Series utilizes SST’s unique system of applying both vacuum and gas pressure to achieve an extremely low-void rate for the soldering interface of key components inside a power module, especially for DBC-to-baseplate soldering.

Product Line

  • Designed for fully automated epoxy and eutectic die attach processes, the 3880 Die Bonder combines fine placement accuracy, fast indexing time, and excellent tool planarity and repeatability make it the most advanced die bonder platform available today. Its innovative integrated Z-Theta bidirectional 8-tool bond head make it the fastest and most reliable multiple die-type bonder on the market. 

  • The SST 5100 is a vacuum and pressure furnace that provides precise automatic control of heating and cooling ramp rates. This system allows for heating up to 500°C and cooling in an inert gas environment from vacuum levels below 50 millitorr to pressures up to 40 psig. Adding the QuikCool™ to the SST 5100 reduces cycle time and increases throughput of the package assembly process.
  • The 9000 Wedge Bonder is a high-speed fine wire wedge and ribbon bonder, offering the flexibility to change wire feed angles to 45-60° or 90°deep access on a single large work area. Its key differentiators - such as the large work area, high precision and no surface touch - help customers achieve modern wedge bond requirements.

  • The Palomar 8000i Wire Bonder is a fully automated thermosonic high-speed, ball-and-stitch wire bonder capable of ball bumping, stud bumping, wafer bumping, chip bumping, and customized looping profiles. Its patented Dual Z-Axis bond head enables extremely reliable Deep Access wire bond performance.
  • The SST 3150 is a high vacuum furnace that provides advanced packaging capabilities in vacuum levels as low as 10-7 Torr, and temperatures up to 500°C (1000°C optional). The clean-room compatible system may also be configured to allow for in situ separation of lid and package, getter firing and sealing of MEMS packages.

Delivering Higher Reliability, Higher Quality Power Modules

 Typical power module construction
 
Power Semiconductors have enjoyed steady growth for at least the last 15 years, with only the occasional down turn. It is expected that the global market will continue to drive more energy consumption (roughly 20TWh is currently used today). However, the market will push for energy savings through improved efficiencies and it will seek higher performances in power electronics. READ MORE
