|English term or phrase: Single Fiber Bond Wire|
|applications for fiber optics laser sensors|
[Sensor model] Single Fiber Bond Wire
To monitor the presence or absence of a bond wire, a high-powered sensor is required. The [sensor model], in conjunction with a [fibre optics model], has the optical gain necessary to sense a bond wire as small as 80 microns in diameter. This application requires the position of the bond wire to remain controlled, with minimum flutter, in front of the fiber optic sensing tip.
To monitor the presence or absence of bond wire"
... 1) is single fiber referred to the fiber optics or to the wire? 2) what's bond wire? is it the same as ground wire? or has it anything to do with wire bonding [microelectronics]. In the picture I can see a spool from which wire is unrolled
|English translation:See explanation below...|
1) Single fiber is definitely referring to the fiber optic, of that I am convinced.
2) bond wire can SOMETIMES mean 'ground OR earth bonding wire', but as they are looking at sizes down to 80µm, I don't think that's likely here; my instinct says that this is indeed talking about the microelectronics bond wire --- I'm not entirely familiar with this, but presume it is referring the fine wires used internally to 'bond' [= make a firm connection] between the IC chip and the pin-out metalwork, or something along those lines...

|many thanks also to Kenneth, I translated the fiber as being fiber optic and made a note to client, have a nice day!|
