Our ability to generate strong gross margins was due, in part, to the strong contributions from wedge bonding, stud bumping, tools, and our service solutions, and the positive impact of our flexible manufacturing model. In addition, efforts in advanced packaging continue to produce outstanding results as the development team continues to innovate and produce deliverables against an aggressive road map."
