High-tech products such as automobile sensors require ultra-high reliability and cost-effective assembly. Structured glass wafers being the delivery format for glass pedestals carrying the functional MEMS sensor unit need to provide perfect surfaces as well as high-tolerance structures. FLEXINITY® is particularly important in today’s automotive industry, where it performs in small sensors, as well as enabling the development of new pressure sensor dies.
3D camera imaging demands exceptional wafer level optics, with these high-precision components promoting excellent image and light propagation through multi-stacked systems. FLEXINITY® makes a significant contribution to this demanding technology as highly accurate components such as spacer wafers.
FLEXINITY® wafers perform an extremely valuable supporting role in the optoelectronics industry by forming spacers and housing parts for the electronic packaging of a wide variety of components. These components include electro-optical converters, transducers, transmitters, laser diodes, and LEDs.
Microfluidic spacers made with FLEXINITY® structured glass enable highly defined and accurate diagnostics. This is especially important for microfluidic cells and the development of new pharmaceuticals, as the cells need holes and channels in top and bottom plates to inkjet and outcouple fluids that are analyzed in microfluidic cavities.
Advanced packaging for high-performance computing requires thermally stable, stiff substrates with a low electrical loss. FLEXINITY® combines the excellent properties of glass with ultra-precise and small structures. This enables a new level of integration and performance for fast computing with low energy consumption.
High-precision small glass parts, tailor-made in terms of outer geometry and through-hole structures, are of particular interest for many applications, such as the packaging of optoelectronic devices and design elements for consumer products such as watches. In their final format, these glass parts are delivered in-frame and are easy to detach on demand, enabling simple assembly into your product.
