The current trend of miniaturization in the electronics and communication sectors continues unabatedly. This indicates the growing need for new hermetic sealing solutions to enable increasingly larger volumes of data to be transmitted at high speeds while constantly minimizing the space required to do so. Conventional glass-to-metal sealed feedthroughs are often not up to this task when dealing with extraordinary conductor systems that require more flexible solutions.
Ceramic-to-metal sealed feedthroughs (SCHOTT CerTMS®) use multi-layer ceramic feedthroughs for faster and yet highly resistant data transmission. These hermetically sealed housings offer reliable protection to sensitive components, whether they are used in purely electronic, opto-electronic or microelectronic systems.
SCHOTT CerTMS® feedthroughs ensure properties such as air-tightness, long-life cycles, robustness and reliability. In addition, they have a range of application-specific advantages such as the following:
SCHOTT CerTMS® feedthroughs for microelectronic packaging are particularly suited for applications with special signal wiring and contact density requirements, such as:
Potentially existing optical components are always integrated using soldering. The metal housings are manufactured using a range of production technologies (stamping, milling, turning, deep-drawing, MIM, precision casting) depending on their application.
The housings can also be plated with various metals to customer specifications in addition to conventional nickel, nickel-gold and nickel-silver plating. Please refer to the SCHOTT CerTMS® technology section for more information about this technology
