Lead forming apparatus and method of fabricating semiconductor device

A lead forming apparatus has a function of bending leads of a semiconductor device having leads into a gull wing shape. The lead forming apparatus includes: a lead bending die, as a lower die, allowing thereon placement of the semiconductor device and accepting the leads in the bending leads; a lead bending punch, as an upper die, descending towards the lead bending die so as to move the leads of the semiconductor device towards the lead bending die, to thereby bend the leads into a gull wing shape; and a first stopper specifying the bottom dead center of the lead bending punch, so as to ensure a distance not smaller than thickness of the leads between the bottom surface of the lead bending punch and the top surface of a portion, allowing thereon placement of the leads, of the lead bending die.
