    SCHOTT And Primoceler Join Forces To Advance The Next Generation Of Ultra-Miniature, Ultra-Reliable Medical Implants

    The technology group SCHOTT has entered into an agreement to acquire Primoceler Oy to expand its hermetic packaging portfolio with pioneering glass micro bonding technology. This process enables the manufacture of vacuum-tight, ultra-miniature electronic and optical devices with superior reliability. Based on laser technology, this state-of-the-art bonding method can be completed without any heat or added materials, allowing device packaging for sensitive electronics made with only transparent materials, such as glass. Offering excellent biocompatibility with new glass types, the technology creates new possibilities for wafer level chip scale packaging (WL-CSP) in a wide range of applications, including medical implants, MEMS devices, and other reliability-critical electronic and optical devices.
