TI’s Journey to High-Volume Copper Wire Bonding Production

Abstract: The use of copper wire bonding in semiconductor packages has seen a steady evolution in recent years. The technology offers better performance and is more economical than traditional gold wire bonding, and Texas Instruments has played an instrumental role in developing copper wire bonding across the industry. With billions of units shipped, TI offers packaging solutions that deliver the performance, reliability, quality and cost advantages of copper. Copper wire bonding is a proven, standard solution across many of TI’s analog, embedded processing and wireless products, and it is gaining broad acceptance among customers. This white paper will explore the technology’s benefits and technical challenges faced in the ramp of copper wire bonding to high volume production.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
