Reliability in extreme condition
For every aerospace application, reliability is of the essence. Primoceler’s bonding technology offers reliable all-glass packages, which deliver high stability in harsh environments.
- High hermeticity ›› Reliable device operation
- No additives ›› Outgassing issues minimized
- All-in-glass package available ›› CTE issues minimized
Reliability beyond expectations
In aerospace applications, hermeticity is very important, supporting long device lifetime in extreme conditions. Visual inspection is also crucial when verifying device reliability. SCHOTT Primoceler’s glass packages allow a simple way of looking into the devices, making visual inspection without the use of X-rays possible.
Bonding technology for opto-electric devices
SCHOTT Primoceler‘s Glass Micro Bonding enables the manufacture of optical sensors and opto-electric devices, such as high reliability VCSEL and photodiode devices. The bonding method does not need additive materials, mitigating outgassing issues. Furthermore, challenges due to thermal cycling can be avoided.
Room temperature vacuum sealing
Applications such as IR microbolometers, atomic clocks, and inertial sensors require hermetic vacuum sealing, which must be absolutely reliable in order to support long-term device performance. Vacuum seals are also used to protect MEMS devices. SCHOTT Primoceler Oy can perform vacuum sealing at room temperature and a controlled gas environment can be sealed inside the device.
