I would like to know if ENIG is widely used for the thermosonic gold wire bonding or this application is an exotic one. And I also wold like to talk to someone who uses printed circuits with ENIG finish for such an application. I do not quite underst

It depends on your product requirements. I have seen aluminium wire bonding operations in as high as class 100K clean rooms. These are the assembly areas for calculators. The best is class 10K clean room for wire bonding. You can go upto fine pitch w

Hi all. I am looking into the implementation of the Chip on Board process with eutactic bonding and the then using either gold or aluminum wire to make wedge type wire bonding. Since I am totally new to this, can somebody guide me thru the process,

We buy PCBs for aluminium wire bonding. Our PCBs have 0.25 mm square pads for bonding and 0.10 or 0.15 mm gap between circuit traces/tracks. We do not have any problem. Our vendor gives 9 microns of Nickel and 0.03 microns of gold.

You don't TS bond gold wire to nickel [of ENIG] for the same reason that you don't TS bond gold wire to hard gold. [Nickel or maybe cobalt is used to harden soft gold.] Together nickel and gold produce unreliable bonds. Look here: * http://www.smta.
