What Is Bonding Wire?
A bonding wire is a wire connecting two pieces of equipment, often for hazard prevention. To bond two drums, a bonding wire must be used, which is a copper wire with alligator clips.
Gold wire bonding offers an interconnection method within packages that is highly electrically conductive, nearly an order of magnitude greater than some solders. In addition, gold wires have a high oxidation tolerance compared to other wire materials and are softer than most, which is essential for sensitive surfaces.
Wire bonding is the process of creating electrical interconnections between semiconductors (or other integrated circuits) and silicon chips using bonding wires, which are fine wires made of materials such as gold and aluminium. The two most common processes are gold ball bonding and aluminium wedge bonding.
