  2. 2. www.redmicrowire.com RED Micro Wire at a glance What is RED Micro Wire (RMW)? RED Micro Wire is a technology start-up, works in collaboration with a technology partner (WMT). RMW developed a new technic to produce A VERY cost effective micro bonding wire with the highest quality for the Semiconductor, LED, Other industries. RMW Product Unique composite bonding wire with a fine glass coating and a soft Copper/Silver core. Why RED Micro Wire The RMW innovation solution solves problems that have challenged the semiconductor industry for decades, fulfilling the demand for a high reliability – low cost solution and enabling further industry innovations
  3. 3. www.redmicrowire.com Bonding Wire What is bonding wire? Micro Wire bonding involves welding thin wire to a pad on a bare semiconductor die-chip and the other end of the wire to a conductive pad on a substrate/package, to be placed on a PCB providing electrical connection between the silicon chip and the external leads of the semiconductor device Wire bonding market is $5B, mostly made either of Gold (Au), or Copper (Cu) Silver (Ag) starting now  Cu & Ag are becoming most common in the market,
