Kulicke & Soffa Expands The Advanced Copper Solution (ACS) Series Capillaries – Introduces ACS MaxTM And ACS LiteTM

Stocks in this article: KLIC

Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: KLIC) ("Kulicke & Soffa", "K&S" or the "Company") today announced the expansion of its Advanced Copper Solution (ACS) Series Capillaries, with the addition of ACS Max TM and ACS Lite TM.

The ACS Series of capillaries are based on the Company’s advanced material development and deep-rooted application knowledge. This family of capillaries offers production benefits for various copper wire bonding applications and has been expanded to serve the broader copper market:

  • The ACS Pro TM, first launched at SEMICON Taiwan in Sept of 2013, is the best fit for ultra-fine pitch and advanced copper wire bonding applications with a bond pad pitch range of 40-69 microns.
  • The new ACS Max TM is targeted for advanced package carrier families, such as mid-pin count QFP, QFN, PPF, uPPF and leadframes with a bond pad pitch range of 70-120 microns.
  • The new ACS Lite TM is targeted for low-pin count applications, such as discrete & powered integrated circuit applications using large wire diameters and a bond pad pitch in excess of 120 microns.

Nelson Wong, Kulicke & Soffa's Vice President, Wire Bond Solutions Business Unit, remarked, "Aligned with our leading position in copper wire bonding, the introduction of ACS Max TM and ACS Lite TM further enhances our customer’s ability to create high quality bonds using larger diameter copper wire. The unique design dynamics of the ACS Series drive cost of ownership benefits by enabling a wider process window and more consistent bond quality throughout the capillary’s life.”

The ACS Max TM and ACS Lite TM Capillaries will debut at the SEMICON China show at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Booth #3417, from March 18-20, 2014.
