  • Publication number: 20220052014
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes an integrated circuit die having bond pads and a bond wires. The bond wires are connected to respective ones of the bond pads by a ball bond. An area of contact between the ball bond and the bond pad has a predetermined shape that is non-circular and includes at least one axis of symmetry. A ratio of the ball bond length to the ball bond width may be equal to a ratio of the bond pad length to the bond pad width.

  • Publication number: 20210366875
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes a vertical column of wire bonds on substrate contact fingers of the device. Semiconductor dies are mounted on a substrate, and electrically coupled to the substrate such that groups of semiconductor dies may have bond wires extending to the same contact finger on the substrate. By bonding those wires to the contact finger in a vertical column, as opposed to separate, side-by-side wire bonds on the contact finger, an area of the contact finger may be reduced.

  • Patent number: 10483239
    Abstract: A semiconductor device is disclosed including semiconductor die formed with a row of functional die bond pads and an adjacent row of dummy die bond pads. The functional die bond pads may be electrically connected to the integrated circuits formed within the semiconductor die. The dummy die bond pads may be formed in the scribe area of a semiconductor wafer from which the semiconductor die are formed, and are provided for wire bonding the semiconductor die within the semiconductor device.
