Bond Wire Break Detection with a Fiber Optic Pair

Bond Wire Break Detection with a Fiber Optic Pair Image

Challenge

Detecting wire breakage quickly can prevent unnecessary downtime and errors. In order to accurately detect when a wire breaks, a sensor is needed to monitor the space below the wire.

Solution

A pair of fiber optics in opposed mode are located below the bond wire. When the wire breaks and falls through the beam, an adjustable one-shot output pulse is energized. 

This application does not require a consistent positioning of the bonding wire.

The DF-G2 series has a has up to a 10 microsecond response time, allowing it to respond to wire breaks quickly and efficiently.
