* Different types of wire call for different materials. As such, we recommend wire selection based on the following table:

Hole Diameter

Wire diameter is a key factor in determining the appropriate hole size of the capillary.
An optimal hole size is essential for a successful first bond and also for the ensuing looping process.

FP : Hole Dia. > Wire Dia. + 0.2 mil
NORMAL : Hole Dia. > Wire Dia. + 0.4 mil

Tip Diameter

The optimal tip size determined by the Bond Pad Pitch.

Chamfer Diameter

The Chamfer Diameter (CD) holds the Free Air Ball during the 1st bonding.
The size of the CD needs to be optimized with the Bond Pad Opening in order to ensure prime performance.

If the CD is too large to transfer the USG during 1st bonding, the pad may incur damage.
On the flip side, if the CD is too small and there is no gap between the CD and the hole, this causes the wire to be cut too
early during the second bonding process and as a result, wires will go missing (as illustrated in the picture below).

Outer Radius and Face Angle

The Outer Radius (OR) is crucial during the 2nd bonding process, particularly for stitch readings.
A small OR can cause Heel Cracks (as shown in the picture below). On the other hand, if the OR is too large,
there won’t be sufficient space for the Face Angle (FA), which can lead to issues with stitch readings.

The Face Angle is unique to the package, as is the bonding environment.
We take the FA and OR into consideration and offer tailored solutions for each customer, in order to ensure prime stitches
during the 2nd bonding process.
