Milpitas, Calif. – (January 3, 2022) As a full-service provider of post wafer fab production of Hi-Rel Monolithic and Hybrid Integrated Circuits, Golden Altos is committed to quality, reliability, and the timely delivery of our customers products. Established in 1989, Golden Altos continuously strives to be the leader of hermetic assembly services, qualification, and turnkey solutions for the semiconductor, military, and aerospace communities.

Today, Golden Altos proudly announces the addition of the XYZTEC Condor Sigma Wire Tester. This multifunctional tester further expands the limits of what Golden Altos can provide to their customers.

With advanced sensor accuracy and resolution, this future proof and modular design comes with state of the art, and full automation capabilities. Holding up to 6 different sensors, the Revolving Measurement Unit allows for continuous testing, fiducial recognition, wire detection, tool alignment, self-aligning shear tool, SECS/GEM, next level smart vision and image measurement, and much more. This expansion will transform how Golden Altos provides bond pull and die shear services.

Bond Technician, Joedale Poblete, had this to say about his experience with the tester: “As a contract manufacturer, this equipment has saved time with the dual-use purpose.  With a flip of a switch, we can now do bond pull and die shear testing on the same piece of equipment. With the built-in-software, we also get the SPC data automatically for each lot. The machine is flexible to use, easy to set up and very efficient. The flexibility of this equipment allows us to work on a variety of different packages. Its versatility allows us to perform work such as automatic non-destructive bond pull.”

When asked what his favorite feature of the XYZTEC Condor Sigma was, he said, “The auto hook feature is a brilliant addition to our industry!”

Adhering to customer needs will always be a core value at Golden Altos. With the vision for continuous improvement, the XYZTEC Condor Sigma Wire Tester provides Golden Altos with the latest technology to serve its customers. This improvement illustrates Golden Altos’ commitment to providing the industry with the necessary services which meet the stringent requirements in an efficient manner for the semiconductor, military, and aerospace communities.
