Every Gram Counts: SCHOTT Launches Lightweight Microelectronic Packages for Aerospace
by Staff Writers
Rye Brook NY (SPX) Sep 19, 2023

In today's fast-paced commercial aerospace market, companies need materials that are both lightweight and durable enough to withstand hostile, demanding environments. SCHOTT's new lightweight microelectronic packages meet this challenge by delivering the same reliable, long-lasting protection for avionics while slashing their weight by up to two-thirds compared to traditional electronic packaging made from kovar. As a long-time partner to the industry, SCHOTT has designed its latest product to help make aviation and space missions lower in cost.

Electronics for aviation and space have a number of mission critical uses, such as in communications, navigation systems, and propulsions monitoring. SCHOTT's new lightweight microelectronic packages help protect sensitive electronics, like radio frequency designs, DC/DC converters, and sensor components.

"Over the last few years, we've been excited to see more customers interested in hermetic packaging for aerospace applications. We know that for them, every gram counts," said Georg Mittermeier, optoelectronics product manager at SCHOTT. "That's why we've designed our new lightweight packages to provide the same reliable protection for avionics with up to two-thirds less weight."

Aviation and space manufacturers face similar challenges, such as designing products that can fly in harsh environments and reducing overall costs associated with weight. Ensuring electronic equipment functions reliably through extreme temperature changes and mechanical stresses requires special protection against these conditions. SCHOTT's lightweight microelectronic packages deliver reliable protection for these electronics due to their superior robustness, while delivering the cost-saving advantages of their lightweight construction.
