Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. Receives Two Purchase Orders, from Two Separate Customers, for its Latest Advanced Display System - LUMINEX™

2022-05-04 20:30:00

Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. announced that the company received two purchase orders, from two separate customers, for its latest advanced display system - LUMINEX™. Launched in November last year, LUMINEX is a disruptive laser-based mini and micro LED die-transfer solution. This highly flexible system is capable of single die transfer, multi-die transfer and mass transfer supporting sorting, mixing, re-pitching and placement process steps. The broad flexibility of this system addresses the growing advanced display value chain and supports needs of LED, OSAT, panel and display suppliers. The company expects mini LED backlit displays currently represent only 3% of display capacity and will accelerate to reach 20% penetration levels by 2025. During this same period mini LED direct-emissive technologies are to grow to 18% by 2025, creating strong growth prospects for its growing portfolio of advanced display solutions.

Kulicke & Soffa and PDF Solutions Announce Collaboration to Deliver New Smart Manufacturing Solutions

2022-04-12 13:05:00

Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. and PDF Solutions, Inc. announced their existing relationship is expanding to address the challenges of production system control and variability reduction in semiconductor assembly and packaging. As more companies adopt innovative packaging and assembly technologies to bring new products to market, it has become essential to apply smart manufacturing methods to identify the root cause of packaging and assembly issues that impact product yield, quality, and cost. Fast-growing advanced packaging methodologies such as System-in-Package (SiP) and Multi-Chip Modules (MCM), are providing performance, power, form-factor and cost improvements, without relying on traditional device-scaling techniques. However, the shift from a transistor focus to a packaging and assembly focus has brought new engineering challenges. The increased demands placed on tool control in assembly will require big-data collection and analytical techniques to optimize these emerging packaging solutions. The Kulicke & Soffa (K&S) and PDF Solutions collaboration is intended to combine assembly Fault Detection and Classification (FDC) data, collected by K&S' RPM™ (Real-time Process Monitoring) data-enabled tools, with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities from PDF Solutions' Exensio® platform. The unification of RPM and Exensio analytic capabilities is being designed to enable insights to directly enhance advanced assembly issue dispositioning and containment, driving yield and efficiency gains for customers. In addition to these production benefits, this collaboration is also intended to help alleviate the ongoing chip shortage. These combined capabilities are being architected to also identify out-of-control process and equipment issues before they require unanticipated downtime, enhancing system throughput and delivering more chips to market from existing manufacturing capacity. K&S and PDF Solutions will support early adopters through an Early Access Program.

Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. Expands Thermal Compression Bonding Capabilities to Accelerate Innovation in the Integration of Semiconductor and Silicon Photonics

2022-02-01 14:05:00

Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. announced it is expanding its Thermal Compression Bonding (TCB) capabilities to accelerate innovation in the integration of semiconductor and Silicon Photonics. Multi-Chip integration is a fast-growing assembly trend supporting transistor-level density at the package level for both high-volume semiconductors and also leading-edge assembly. The Company's broad assembly solutions are addressing current needs for Multi-Chip Module (MCM) assembly, System-in-Package (SiP) as well as the emerging market needs for Heterogeneous, or Chiplet, integration and also co-packaged optics. High-Performance Computing (HPC) and data center applications which support artificial intelligence, 5G, autonomous vehicles and wearable technology are demanding these emerging package types. Kulicke & Soffa's TCB solution utilizes a unique formic acid process, that supports new assembly and packaging requirements for Silicon Photonics, the co-packaging of semiconductors and Silicon Photonics and 2.5D/3D heterogeneous integration.
