Markets and Applications
In Landshut, SCHOTT develops and produces a wide range of electronic packaging and specialty glass powders for a vast number of applications. Those applications include high-speed data and telecommunications, sensors for the automotive market, and components for the energy sector, as well as non-electronic applications such as composite dental fillings and sterilizable LEDs for the medical industry.
Since versatility is a key characteristic of glass-to-metal sealing, other applications include high-temperature industrial sensors, batteries and capacitors, implantable medical devices, and opto-electronic packaging.
The Electronic Packaging business unit of SCHOTT consists of six product areas: automotive, opto-electronics, frequency control, large-scale feedthroughs, specialty glass, and thermal cutoffs. Within these areas are some of the most widely used glass components in the world, from feedthroughs for automotive airbags and seatbelts to lithium ion battery protectors. Other products in our vast electronic packaging portfolio include passivation glasses for semiconductors, microelectronic packaging, and hermetic packages for LiDAR sensors – vital in the development of autonomous vehicles.
