Innovations in Optics Acquires New Automatic Die Bonder to Keep Up with Rapid Growth


Reading time ( words)

In our continued strategic pursuit of excellence and improvement, Innovations in Optics, Inc. has purchased a new F&S BONDTEC Model 5830 automatic wire bonder to produce chip-on-board die arrays used in the company’s high-power UV LED light sources. This new addition will not only expand capacity, but also enhance capabilities. The machine will increase efficiency and overall throughput times. The automatic wire bonder brings value added throughout the entire manufacturing process for the company and reinforces our dedication to quality.

The BONDTEC 5830 can handle bond wire diameters to 3 mils (75 micrometer), a critical feature for the high current density operation applicable to all LED arrays within products manufactured by Innovations in Optics. Key features of exchangeable bond heads and the ability to store an unlimited number of complex bond programs perfectly support the variety and intricacy of die arrays unique to Innovations in Optics.

Approaches to Overcome Nodules and Scratches on Wire-Bondable Plating on PCBs

07/17/2019 | Young K. Song and Vanja Bukva, Teledyne Dalsa Inc., and Ryan Wong, FTG Circuits
Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.
