For over six decades, SCHOTT, a world leader in this area, has been designing and co-developing hermetic packages with customers for the long term protection of sensitive electronic components.
Our hermetic packages and feedthroughs are based on glass-to metal and ceramic to-metal sealing technologies and have been used for many years in avionics and other demanding safety related applications, such as reliable packages for automotive airbag igniters.
SCHOTT packages are water-, humidity and gas-tight. The materials used are non-flammable and do not produce hazardous fumes.
The packages can withstand pressures of up to 4500 bar and are tested with temperature shocks of -65°C (-85°F) up to +150°C (+302°F) for 15 cycles.
Miniaturization of packages by using smaller pin pitch sizes (e.g. our 2-pin feedthrough with a diameter of 1.2 mm or 0.05 inch) or ceramic feedthroughs.
To reduce the weight of components, we offer advanced lightweight materials, like aluminium and titanium.
