Kulicke & Soffa Introduces UniPlus Series of Hub Dicing Blades.
Fort Washington, PA-September 9, 2008 - Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KLIC) ("K&S") today announced the launch of UniPlus - a new series of hub dicing blades that provides improved cut quality, longer blade life and increased productivity for a variety of chip scale package (CSP) applications.
Each blade in the UniPlus series is designed for a specific package singulation application, including Ceramic, ball grid array (BGA) substrates and quad flat no-lead (QFN) leadframes. This flexibility allows customers to tailor their approach based on their individual process and project requirements and improves overall cut quality.
UniPlus blades also utilize a harder nickel bond, which maximizes blade life and permits higher feeding speeds than traditional bond materials.
