Gold bonding wires are manufactured from high-purity starting materials (99,999 %) with doping additions. New applications and their increased requirements led to the development of alloyed gold bonding wires.
All wires are corrosion resistant and display homogeneous chemical composition and stable mechanical properties.
The wire surfaces are very clean and of high quality. Gold bonding wires are principally used in the production of plastic packaged components. The highest processing rates are achieved by using the ball/wedge bonding process.
