reusing capillary, gold wire bonding, bond shear, design of experiment


Manufacturing process improvement is necessary for manufacturers to gain business advantages. Re-using or increasing the useful lives of machine parts is considered to be a process of performance improvement. To re-use parts, the manufacturers must know the effects of the factors related to workpieces' qualities to prevent defects. This research study aims at presenting the results of analysing the effects of the factors and mathematical models for bond shear strength when reusing gold wire bonding capillary in the gold wire bonding process of integrated circuit (IC) products using design experiment. The operation factors in the reference experiment, including bond force, bond time, USG current, EFO current and EFO gap, are investigated. The Fractional Factorial Design was used to determine five factors that affect the bond shear strength. The analysis of the results show that the bond force is a significant factor where increasing bond force factors leads to increasing bond shear strength. In the end, a Regression model of bond shear strength is obtained to show the result between the bond shear strength and effect of factors.

ABSTRAK: Proses pembaharuan pengilangan adalah penting untuk para pengilang bagi memperoleh keuntungan bisnes. Guna-semula atau menambah jangka hayat pada bahagian-bahagian tertentu pada mesin adalah dianggar sebahagian proses penambahbaikan prestasi mesin. Bagi mengguna semula bahagian-bahagian ini, pengilang mesti mengetahui akibat sesuatu faktor berkaitan kualiti bahan bagi mengelak kecacatan. Kajian ini bertujuan menyampaikan dapatan kajian melalui kesan faktor dan model matematik pada kekuatan ricihan ikatan apabila mengguna semula wayar emas melalui proses kapilari ikatan wayar emas pada produk litar bersepadu melalui rekaan eksperimen. Faktor operasi melalui rujukan eksperimen dari daya ikatan, masa ikatan, arus USG, arus EFO dan jarak EFO dikaji. Rekaan Faktorial Pecahan digunakan bagi mendapatkan lima faktor yang mempengaruhi kekuatan ricihan ikatan. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan daya ikatan merupakan faktor penting di mana, pertambahan faktor daya ikatan menguatkan ricihan ikatan. Akhirnya, model Regression kekuatan ricihan ikatan diperoleh bagi menjelaskan dapatan kajian antara kekuatan ricihan ikatan dan kesan faktor.
