AMICRA Gets Multi Million Dollar Order From China


AMICRA Microtechnologies GmbH, German-based vendor of advanced back-end processing equipment, has received a multi-million dollar order from a multinational telecommunications company based in China. The order calls for several of AMICRA's AFC Die Bonder / Flip-Chip Bonder Systems for extremely high-precision bonding offering a placement accuracy of +0.5 µm at 3 Sigma.

AMICRA Managing Director Dr. Johann Weinhaendler welcomed the new order as proof of the company's well known proficiency in the highly demanding and competitive market for advanced processing equipment. "We at AMICRA Microtechnologies are very happy about the new order coming from an important user market of ours. We are looking forward to an excellent customer partnership with a major corporation." The AFC bonders will be used in the packaging of optical devices at the Chinese customer's facility.

The latest large purchase order for the AFC Plus exemplifies AMICRA's earned expertise and continued commitment in providing customers with extraordinary products and engineering services, showing that its specialization on the latest high-precision die-bonder and flip-chip bonders, wafer inking systems, dispense and test systems as well as products for the entire field of microelectronics is paying off big.

AMICRA delivers equipment for active optical cable, fan-out, TSV, TCB, process development, silicon photonics, semiconductor backend, fiber optic, LED, opto-electronics, and MEMS processing.

The ultra-high-precision AFC Plus bonding system was designed as a modular concept for utmost user flexibility and accommodation. AFC Plus realizes a placement accuracy of +0.5 µm at 3 Sigma for die and flip-chip attach. At a cycle time of < 20 sec, it is well suited for processing micro-optic and micro-mechanic components, with eutectic bonding via diode laser or heating plate. AFC Plus provides auto loading of wafers and substrates, wafer mapping, epoxy stamping and dispensing.

Active alignment is provided on request. Post-bond inspection is included; UV curing is featured as an option.

Another of AMICRA's product offerings, introduced in 2010, is the dual-head NOVA Plus Die-attach and Flip-chip Placement system.

NOVA Plus offers high accuracy (+2.5 μm at 3 Sigma) as well as high-speed processing at a very low cycle time of <3 sec. Auto-loading is provided for wafers up to 12 inch (300 mm) diameter and up to 450 mm substrate wafers, with a substrate working area of 500 x 500 mm. With these specs, NOVA Plus is well suited for today's preferred bond processes such as eutectic, epoxy, and laser bonding. Alignment is passive, with active bond force control.

AMICRA, Dr. Weinhaendler says, is committed to continue applying its advanced engineering know-how to keep up with rapidly evolving micro-electronic market demands and providing customers with advanced micro assembly solutions. With its latest die bonder and flip chip bonders AMICRA has evolved and optimized traditional bond processes in the direction of high precision and low cost.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
