Kulicke & Soffa Extends Power Series to Wedge Bond with PowerFusion PS

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KLIC  ) (“K&S” or the “Company”) today announced another extension of its highly successful K&S Power SeriesTM equipment. The Company’s new high performance Orthodyne wedge bonder, PowerFusionPS, is driven by a new powerful direct-drive motion system and expanded pattern recognition capabilities which deliver industry leading productivity and performance.

The PowerFusionPS fits well into the Power Series of products, known for setting new standards for productivity, performance, advanced package capability, ease of use, configuration flexibility and reliability. PowerFusionPS boasts increased UPH that is enabled by the direct-drive servo system and faster pattern recognition find times. It also shows higher MTBA due to the improved pattern recognition. The advanced package capabilities of PowerFusionPS improves the processing of high-density power packages, due to an expanded bondable area, wider leadframe capability and superior indexing accuracy and teach mode.

PowerFusion PS is available in two different models with single or multiple head configurations. The TL Model is the perfect choice for bonding single-row to four-row matrix TO- power discrete packages. The enhanced HL model is intended for advanced power package designs. When bonding high density power devices, like SO-8 & PDFN, or stretching the wire limits on a matrix D-Pak, the superior indexing accuracy and clamping capabilities of the HL Model deliver consistent performance.Both Models provide industry leading productivity that lowers cost of ownership by improved uptimes and higher bond yields.

Matt Vorona, Kulicke & Soffa’s Vice President – Wedge Bond Business Unit, remarked, "Our state of the art PowerFusionPS series by K&S launches a product firmly in the tradition of Orthodyne wedge bonders, well known in the power semiconductor industry for leading edge innovation, productivity and performance."

Customers can view the highly anticipated wedge bonder during the SEMICON China show from March 19-21, 2013 in the Kulicke & Soffa Booth #3401.
