Reliability in extreme condition
For every aerospace application reliability is of the essence.
Primoceler’s bonding technology offers reliable all-in-glass packages, which means devices will have 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 many aerospace applications hermeticity is very important, ensuring long device lifetime in extreme conditions. Visual inspection is also crucial when verifying device reliability. 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
Primoceler’s Glass micro Bonding enables 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, avoiding any outgassing issues. Furthermore, challenges due to thermal cycling can be completely avoided.
Room temperature vacuum sealing
Applications such as IR microbolometers, atomic clocks, and inertial sensors require hermetic vacuum sealing, which must be permanent in order to ensure a reliable device performance. Vacuum is also used to protect MEMS devices. Primoceler can perform vacuum sealing in room temperature and a controlled gas environment can be sealed inside the device.
