Continuing with the successful launch of the AsterionTM wedge bonder, K&S will be introducing the AsterionTM EV – an extended version of the wedge bonder which is built on a new architecture with enhanced capability to handle a multitude of interconnect materials.

In addition, K&S will be featuring the new TPR (Twin Placement Robot), which brings the placement accuracy of the Hybrid to 7µm. The Hybrid is a multi-application solution for advanced packaging, ideal for wafer level packaging, Fan-Out Wafer Level Packaging (FOWLP), System-in-Package (SiP), Multi-Chip Module (MCM), flip-chip, modules and embedded components. It is highly capable of placing both active and passive components, achieving a throughput up to 27 kUPH for Flip Chips plus 48 kUPH for passives with a single machine.

Chan Pin Chong, Kulicke & Soffa’s Vice President for the Wedge Bonders, Capillaries and Blades Business Lines, said, “K&S is continuing to partner with customers in different application spaces to develop innovative offerings of latest products and solutions. These technical solutions further strengthen our position as a comprehensive solution provider to the market.”
