Ziptronix low-temp direct oxide bonding scales pixels to 0.7

September 27, 2011 — Ziptronix announced just before SEMICON Taiwan that its low-temperature direct oxide bonding technology — Zibond, used for constructing backside-illuminated (BSI) structures in image sensors — was licensed by Sony. In a podcast interview with ElectroIQ.com, Ziptronix president & CEO, Daniel Donabedian, and company CTO, Paul Enquist, discussed both the wafer bonding technology and what the Sony deal means in the podcast below.
