Universal Instruments is embracing the convergence era of electronics assembly with the introduction of the Innova and Innova + direct die feeders. This revolutionary technology enables the presentation of wafer-level devices to Universal’s GenesisSC Platform without incurring costly packaging charges.

Universal Instruments' Advanced Semiconductor Solutions are built upon the high-accuracy GenesisSC (semiconductor) Platform. This uniquely flexible solution incorporates advanced technologies and peripherals that extend equipment capabilities into next-generation assembly.

The Innova and Innova + direct die feeders – the world's first and only totally portable highspeed direct die feeders – give GenesisSC the ability to assemble a complete module on a single machine, placing die and passives precisely and seamlessly. Debbora Ahlgren, Universal Vice President of Marketing, states, "Our semiconductor solutions offer a uniquely modern and versatile approach to the next-generation of manufacturing challenges." Ahlgren continues, "With flip chip semiconductor devices integrated into Bluetooth and WiFi, Automotive Hybrids, Security and a host of other devices, the combination of a high-volume, flexible placement system and Innova wafer-level feeders provides an efficient, profitable flip chip and/or System-in-Package (SiP) assembly solution."

The Innova family allows for the installation of multiple feeders on a single placement machine with minimum feeder slot consumption. Alternate feeder functionality allows for continuous running of like part numbers on multiple feeders. Innova offers true flexibility by presenting a wide variety of flip chips or circuit-up devices with easy relocation and simple changeovers as demands change. The Innova feeder processes wafers of various sizes up to 300mm. Innova + processes up to 13 300mm wafers with on-board expansion capabilities. Further, the Innova family features state-of-the-art, on-board vision processing; wafer map input or ink dot identification; bar code identification and tracking of wafers; and parallel processing for optimum throughput. GenesisSC and Innova deliver a comprehensive solution of high reliability, high speed, and superior flexibility.

The ability to adapt across a wide range of applications allows for a fast, effective transition to new technologies and products to help get them to market faster, reduce operating costs, and enjoy long-term asset protection. Universal Instruments’ solutions include not only best-in-class equipment, but also proven in-depth process knowledge, application expertise, and integration experience to ensure the highest yield and reliability at the lowest possible cost.
