SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: KLIC) (“Kulicke & Soffa”, “K&S” or the “Company”), announced today its contribution of an automatic single-head semiconductor wedge bonder to the Engineering Product Development (EPD) Pillar of the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Wedge Bonder equipment is used in interconnect technologies in a wide range of power semiconductor packages and modules such as the automotive, industrial, renewable energy, consumer and computing markets. New applications utilizing wedge bonder equipment are emerging, and one such application is in the manufacturing of batteries for electric vehicles. A presentation ceremony was held on the same day at the SUTD campus where the equipment was on display with live wire bonding demonstration. Chan Pin Chong, Kulicke & Soffa’s Senior Vice President for AP-Hybrid, Electronics Assembly, Wedge Bonders, Capillaries and Blades Business Lines, said, “K&S believes in continuous learning as it opens doors to innovation and opportunities. As part of our corporate responsibility effort, we hope our contribution of the machine enables hands-on experience for the students, and inspires them in applying technology to real life applications.” Professor Yeo Kiat Seng, SUTD's Associate Provost for Graduate Studies and International Relations said, "SUTD appreciates Kulicke & Soffa’s generous support of the automatic semiconductor wedge bonder. This equipment will provide our students with the desired hands-on experience and skills training in chip assembly, packaging, IC design and semiconductor. SUTD’s partnership with Kulicke & Soffa will mutually benefit both parties as it will catalyze research to greater heights and value-add to the industry and Singapore economy.” Kulicke & Soffa (NASDAQ: KLIC) is a leading provider of semiconductor packaging and electronic assembly solutions supporting the global automotive, consumer, communications, computing and industrial segments. As a pioneer in the semiconductor space, K&S has provided customers with market leading packaging solutions for decades. In recent years, K&S has expanded its product offerings through strategic acquisitions and organic development, adding advanced packaging, electronics assembly, wedge bonding and a broader range of expendable tools to its core offerings. Combined with its extensive expertise in process technology and focus on development, K&S is well positioned to help customers meet the challenges of packaging and assembling the next-generation of electronic devices.

Rule engine technologies have been widely used in the development of enterprise information systems. However, these rule-based systems may suffer the problem of low performance, when there is a large amount of facts data to be matched with the rules. The way of cluster or grid to construct rule engines can flexibly expand system processing capability by increasing cluster scale, and acquire shorter response time. In order to speed up pattern matching in rule engine, a double hash filter approach for alpha network, combined with beta node indexing, is proposed to improve Rete algorithm in this paper. By using fact type node in Rete network, a hash map about 'fact type - fact type node' is built in root node, and hash maps about 'attribute constraint - alpha node' are constructed in fact type nodes. This kind of double hash mechanism can speed up the filtration of facts in alpha network. Meanwhile, hash tables with the indexes cal-culated through fact objects, are built in memories of beta nodes, to avoid unnecessary iteration in the join operations of beta nodes. In addition, rule engine based on this improved Rete algorithm is applied in the enterprise information systems. The experimental results show that this method can effectively speed up the pattern matching, and significantly decrease the response time of the application systems. © 2013 The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers.

A novel watermarked MDC system based on the SFQ algorithm and the sub-sampling method is proposed in this paper. Subsampling algorithm is applied onto the transformed image to introduce some redundancy between different channels. Secret information is embedded into the preprocessed sub-images. Good performance of the new system to defense the noise and the compression attacks is shown in the experimental results.
