In addition to the standard types of packaging such as TO packaging, there is a whole range of other opto-electronic applications that require special packaging. These range from individual sensors to switching systems that require total encapsulation. Glass-to-metal sealed (GTMS) microelectronic packages (otherwise known as hybrid packages) are manufactured according to the requirements of the components requiring protection and fulfill three vital functions.
GTMS feedthroughs provide encapsulated microelectronic packages with:
In addition, our extensive glass processing capabilities ensure the use of highly reliable and extremely accurate optical components for optical signal transmission.
As these feedthroughs do not have standard designs, all of our products are designed and produced in close collaboration with our customers’ needs.
The range of components - whether electronic, opto-electronic or microelectronic (MEMS) - that can be reliably protected using glass-to-metal sealed feedthroughs are wide ranging. Some of the most common applications include components used in the areas of:
GTMS feedthroughs for hybrid packaging, as well as compression glass seals, are manufactured as matched. The types of glass and metal used, as well as the types of electroplating, can be adapted to customer requirements.
