Hi All, I would like to get some inputs regarding this.... I have bare PCB which were stored with kapton tape attached on the Au plated pads. These were stored for close to a year. Upon removal of kapton tape, we noticed discolorations on the edges o

Hi, We are having issues aluminum wirebonding on ENEPIG plated PCB by a too low pull force and or having lifts (1% range). Could any body advice how to solve this problem? Is there a special wire bond grade required? How to best clean contaminant

> News-Blog > Guideline for wire bonding Guideline for wire bonding Tuesday,Jun 12,2018 There are two wire bonding processes that are used, Thermosonic (T/S) Gold Ball Wire Bonding and Ultrasonic (U/S) Aluminum Wedge Wire Bonding. Approximately 90% of all IC Assembly in Semiconductor Packages is manufactured using Gold Ball Bonding process, while Aluminum Wedge Bonding is used to produce about 10% of other Wire Bonding requirements on Printed Circuit Boards (PCB), Printed Circuit Flex (PCF) and other Packages.

As a surface finish for PCBs, Electroless Nickel/Electroless Palladium/Immersion Gold (ENEPIG) was selected over Electroless Nickel/Immersion Gold (ENIG) for CMOS image sensor applications with both surface mount technology (SMT) and gold ball bonding processes in mind based on the research available on-line. Challenges in the wire bonding process on ENEPIG with regards to bondability and other plating related issues are summarized.
