Abstract: In this study, we have investigated a texture and microstructure of gold bonding wire by transmission electron microscope, X-ray diffraction and electron back scatter diffraction according to process parameters, such as casting, drawing and annealing processes. The gold was cast into 7mm diameter rods by vertical continuous casting technique, the cast rods were drawn to a final wire size of 25μm, and then the fine wires were annealed. A unidirectional solidification structure having <100> fiber texture of cast rod was strongly developed depending on casting route and speed. In the sample with unidirectional microstructure developed in partial it is found that dislocation substructure with nano-size appeared to display a characteristic feature, while no dislocation substructure is seen in the sample with complete unidirectional microstructure. Interface stability between solid and liquid may be responsible for this difference in dislocation substructure. With decreasing casting speed <100> fiber component became weak. Initial texture plays important role on development of <111> fiber texture at drawing and final annealing stages. On the basis of results obtained it is suggested that both the initial texture are important in controlling the texture of gold bonding wire.

Abstract: Microstructure and texture formation behavior of a gold rod and fine wire which were produced by continuous casting process and drawing, respectively were investigated by means of optical micrographs, TEM images and X-ray pole figure. Well-developed unidirectional structure aligned to casting direction was found in 7 mm gold rod. Higher casting speed was found to be favor in developing the directional microstructure. In the sample with unidirectional microstructure developed in partial it is found that dislocation substructure with nano-size appeared to display a characteristic feature, while no dislocation substructure is seen in the sample with complete unidirectional microstructure. Interface stability between solid and liquid may be responsible for this difference in dislocation substructure. <100> fiber component was observed to be well developed over the whole microstructure in unidirectional sample. With decreasing casting speed <100> fiber component became weak. Two texture components consisting of <111> fiber and <100> fiber were seen in as-drawn samples. For the development of <111> fiber texture component initial texture component plays a more significant role than subsequent annealing process. Annealing heat treatment would be effective way to control the formation of <100> fiber component. On the basis of results obtained it is suggested that both the initial texture and final annealing are important in controlling the texture of gold bonding wire.
