Pioneering solution enables efficient volume manufacturing for complex multi-die devices.

December 1, 2021 – Universal Instruments will exhibit on Booth 1031 at the SEMICON West trade show in San Francisco, CA on December 7–9. On the booth, Universal will feature its FuzionSC™ Platform equipped with a High-Speed Wafer Feeder (HSWF) – both generously on loan from NextFlex, America’s Flexible Hybrid Electronics Manufacturing Institute.

The FuzionSC Platform delivers precision accuracy, the widest component range and the highest flip chip throughput across the largest area. With the ability to handle all facets of flip chip assembly, FuzionSC reduces operating and capital costs by maximizing throughput per floor space. The HSWF is the world’s fastest rapid-exchange multi-die feeder. Combined with FuzionSC, it is the ultimate multi-die solution for heterogeneous integration.

“Advanced Semiconductor Packaging concepts are coalescing around heterogeneous integration solutions,” noted Universal Instruments Vice President of Marketing, Glenn Farris. “Die-to-die integration via silicon interposers, chiplets, fan-out technology or a combination of these are proliferating. In order to achieve high yields for these new applications, an in situ solution is required and that was our objective from the start. We therefore focused our efforts on attaining the flexibility, accuracy and throughput necessary to place multiple die types in a single cell and enable the world’s only all-in-one solution for heterogeneous integration.”

NextFlex is a consortium of American electronics companies, academic institutions, non-profits and state, local and federal government partners with the shared goal of advancing U.S. manufacturing of printed flexible electronics. NextFlex played an important role in the development of the HSWF, collaborating with Universal along the way and sharing its vision to help align product features and capabilities with current market challenges.

“We are thrilled to have the FuzionSC and High-Speed Wafer Feeder in our advanced lab,” said NextFlex Executive Director, Malcom Thompson. “We are always pushing the technology boundaries and this solution enables us to add incredible capability for thin, multi-wafer and die applications not only for heterogeneous integration, but many other FHE applications.”

Visit us on the booth to see various technologies used in the manufacturing of Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) products. We also encourage you to stop by the Smart MedTech Pavilion on Wednesday, December 8, to speak with NextFlex Director of Technology, Scott Miller, about the different ways that NextFlex is advancing FHE.
