Microelectronic Packages/ Hybrids

The term "hybrid package" or "microelectronic package" refers to the hermetically sealed packaging of encapsulated and non-encapsulated components in one container. In contrast to, for instance TO packages, these packages can be used to package not only a single component, but also several components. The term "microelectronic package" is generally used if it is not possible to protect the component to be encapsulated using standard packaging, due to a special required number or arrangement of feedthroughs.

Microelectronic packaging is used particularly for packaging small- to medium-sized batches of fully electronic circuits. They are used in purely electronic and opto-electronic applications, as well as increasingly in Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS).
