During the March quarter, we experienced an improvement in our equipment business which was largely driven by a higher ball bonder demand. The increase in ball bonder volumes was largely due to a rebound in demand from OSAT customers. 84.8% of wire bonders sold during this quarter were to OSAT customers, an increase from the prior quarter.Demand from copper-capable wire bonders continues to remain strong. Approximately 17.4% of our wire bonders were sold as copper-capable. We estimate around 25% of bonder in the field are copper-capable. This implies that we’re still at the early stages of the broadening transition.
