Epoxy die attach, sometimes referred to as epoxy die bonding, is the most commonly used die attach method. Whether dispensed or daubed via single pin or stamp transfer, it is a more cost-effective solution compared to eutectic bonding; this is due
Posted by Palomar Technologies MarCom Team on Thu, Aug 20, 2020 @ 03:00 PM
Eutectic die attach involves bonding a chip or die to a surface using a solder alloy. These particular solder alloys are used because of their unique property of having a eutectic melting point. Eutectic melting points are much lower than the
