Qualification of New MPP Bonding Tool for 12mils and 5 mils Al Bonding
MPP is proud to announce its recent success in qualifying heavy wire wedges (HWW) for 5 and 12 mil wires with a major Philippines sub-contractor specializing in production of power devices.
MPP’s main objective was to support the customer’s cost reduction and assurance of supply programs. MPP managed to engineer and deliver a set of HWW tools that supported these objectives by enabling the customer to qualify these tools as “drop in” replacements , fully transparent to the POR (Process of Record) without any need for parameter changes.
MPP offers a wide variety of heavy wire wedge solutions for all bonder models including:
✅ Extended life tools
✅ “No clean” tools
✅ Application Specific Customized Solutions
✅ Drop-in replacements for existing processes
