WIRE BONDABLE LEAD FRAME MATERIALS

In semiconductor systems, Lead Frames form the electronic transition between the chip level and the outside macro-scale world.  Often, these are assembled using ultrasonic bonds of fine aluminum wires to link the semiconductor chip to the bondable lead frame. To communicate with the outside world, lead frame materials then have connector terminals with stable contact surfaces.  Using our Hybrid Material Technologies, Materion produces large coils of composite lead frame materials with this functionality, enabling large volume manufacturing of high reliability electronic packaging materials.
