MicroCircuit Laboratories provides development and pilot production services for component level, low temperature, hermetic package encapsulation and test processes, from initial design through all phases of production. Processes are delivered with E10 atm-cm3/sec air
leak rates, a magnitude lower than the most critical Aerospace requirements per MIL-STD 883 Test Method 1014 Seal.
MCL’s capability includes materials design software, class 1 cleanroom processing, pre-seal moisture removal processing, low temperature hermetic package sealing with parallel seam sealing or one-shot low temperature resistance joining, inert environmental processing with 0.1 PPM H2O and O2, automatic gross and fine leak detection and Particle Impact Noise Detection. On site metrology includes Hitachi SEM, GT Real Time X-Ray, Olympus Opto-Digital Microscopes, Mitutoyo CNC Measuring.
All processes are easily transferred to captive or merchant production partners.
