We are thrilled to announce the release of software version 5.17 for our Sigma bond testers! This highly anticipated update brings exciting new features and improvements to enhance your testing experience and empower you to achieve even greater results.

Introducing software version 5.17

Software version 5.17 unlocks new possibilities for Sigma bond testers. Let’s dive right into the new features  and explore what is into it for you:

Support for new USB vision cameras

Experience an enhanced interface for our new USB vision cameras, including improved auto-focus capabilities.

New SECS/GEM solution

The future-proof SECS/GEM implementation is compatible with GEM300 and guarantees streamlined communication and data exchange with your manufacturing equipment.

OCR scanning module

Leverage the power of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to read text using the camera. This feature is part of our image processing. Software 5.17 enables the camera to capture an image during automation and process it to extract the text within and use this as input in a form.

Loadport support

Integrate a bond tester seamlessly into your product line with a Loadport. It enables automatic top- and front-carrier loading and supports various loading methods, including Over Head Transport (OHT), Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV), and manual loading. Communication is established through Semi E84.

Automatic grading

Save time and improve efficiency with the new auto grading feature. Utilizing a deep learning network, the bond tester can automatically determine failure modes of measurements by analyzing test result images.

Loop height measurement

The advanced loop height measurement feature can find the surface with PID and achieves more precise measurements of the distance between the surface or substrate and the wire.

New table mapping wizard

Experience a simplified and faster process for creating accurate table maps with our new wizard. Enjoy a better user experience while ensuring precise table mapping.

SPC export formatter

The export editor enables flexible field import and export. Customize the export to match the requirements of your EFEM wafer handler, including additional parameters such as Wafer ID, Lot lD Foup ID, or Slot ID. Enjoy greater flexibility and adaptability.

Support auto-adjustable strip work holder

Automatic length and width adjustment for loading lead frames ensures fast and efficient handling of lead frames of different lengths and widths. Say goodbye to manual adjustments and enjoy a seamless loading experience with a Sigma MAG for lead frames up to 100×240 mm.

Automation in automation functionality

Program the start of an automation from inside another automation, allowing for more complex and automated testing sequences.

QR code scanner

Seamlessly extract and process 1D barcodes and 2D data codes (QR codes) using our advanced image processing engine. Capture images during automation and use the scanned data as input for our customizable forms.

Focus area for fiducials

Achieve faster focusing with dedicated focus areas for each individual fiducial. Our advanced feature ensures precise and fast focus, enhancing overall efficiency.

Support for image processing software version 20.11

Benefit from numerous new and updated features to improve the efficiency of machine vision processes. For optimal utilization of software version 5.17, image processing software version 20.11 is essential.

Better overall performance

The 5.17 software is fine-tuned to enhance performance and optimize memory usage, ensuring a smoother and faster testing experience.


Software 5.17 requirements

Image processing software version 20.11

Image processing users must have image processing software version 20.11 to take full advantage of software version 5.17. If you currently use an older version than 20.11, we recommend purchasing image processing software version 20.11 for seamless integration with our software 5.17. Please note that image processing version 20.11 is a separate software and is not provided free of charge.



For seamless integration with software 5.17, we strongly advise obtaining a new license if you currently use SECS/GEM in version 5.16. Future software versions will support the new SECS/GEM version with GEM300.

Please get in touch with us if you want to upgrade your image processing software or acquire a (new) SECS/GEM license. Our team will be more than happy to assist you and provide further information on the process.
