Extends Thermo-Compression Adoption Through Unique Fluxless Solution

SINGAPORE, Oct. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:KLIC) ("Kulicke & Soffa", "K&S" or  the "Company") today announced receipt of multiple new purchase orders for its leading thermo-compression solution and has also successfully shipped its first Fluxless Thermo-Compression Bonder (TCB) to a key customer.

To mitigate the growing challenges and decreasing benefits of two-dimensional node shrink, the semiconductor industry is aggressively pursuing more complex assembly approaches such as Heterogeneous Integration (HI) and System-in-Package (SiP) for emerging logic, processor, mixed-signal, silicon photonics, and sensing applications. These new approaches are enabling more efficient, transistor-dense packages with higher levels of performance. Innovations by K&S, including its Fluxless Thermo-Compression process are essential to the future of semiconductor packaging.

Through close engagements with industry-leading customers, the fluxless TCB approach is a market-ready solution for next-generation logic assembly. Kulicke & Soffa's novel fluxless process eliminates contamination concerns while ensuring interconnect integrity through a unique and integrated fluxless delivery module. This latest high-accuracy TCB platform – capable of supporting the majority of emerging heterogeneous packaging needs down to 10µm – is driving considerable interest across the Company's fabless, foundry, IDM and OSAT customer base. According to Techinsights, a world leading market intelligence provider, the global TCB market is expected to grow at a 17.1% CAGR. Through fiscal 2022, the Company anticipates its thermo-compression business has grown by nearly 5 times over fiscal 2021.

Chan Pin Chong, K&S's Executive Vice President of Products and Solutions said, "TCB remains the most cost-effective micro-bump solution for the fine-pitch interconnect process. K&S's unique fluxless bonding brings strong product differentiation value for the Thermo-Compression process. With our extensive development efforts, innovations and engagements with several customers, we are well positioned to rapidly support the emerging industry needs for leading-edge logic production."

In addition to Fluxless Thermo-Compression, the Company's semiconductor advanced packaging portfolio and development initiatives also address wafer-level packaging, SiP, high accuracy flip chip, lithography and hybrid bonding applications.
