OUT NOW! F&S BONDTEC introduces SERIES 56i
F&S BONDTEC is the first and still the only manufacturer to offer a machine that combines bonder and tester in one device – the fully automatic SERIES 56. With it, it is possible to switch between different applications within minutes. Now the new edition of exactly that – the SERIES 56i – is out! The upgrades implemented by F&S BONDTEC create a better work experience in the production of semiconductor devices.
In the new SERIES 56i, you will find an additional control unit, which guarantees even more precise and faster travels. This improvement makes it possible for the first time to make extremely fine wires up to 12 µm bondable on the machine. The bondhead clamping has also been significantly improved and the general machines stiffness has been increased too. On the one hand, this results in faster and safer head changes and in a better overall performance of the 56i.
Trace-X is a software interface for traceability for the F&S BONDTEC 56XXi / 58XX machines. An embedded Python script is loaded by the Bondstar software. This code is open and can be customized by you. The software calls defined functions of the Python script and reports corresponding events.
The goal was to offer a process engineer a variety of parameters for analysis, such as e.g. the current status, production data, and changes in the program. This information can be particularly helpful to optimize production processes and to find problems in the production line more quickly.
Thanks to Smooth 3D – Trajectory, the movement of the head during the bonding process is even smoother and therefore ideal for loop design. Another result of the perfect interplay of hardware and software is the Intelligent Wire Spool. It regulates the unwinding of the bond wire so that it is always under tension and the coil is unwound in a controlled manner.
The Series 56i is also compatible with the new bond weight calibration system MCS-20 and comes with the latest Windows 10.
