Single or Multi-die Packaging and Assembly Service List

Package TypeDescription
Generic AIN CarriersFor photonic chip-on-carrier applications, optimized for semiconductor laser testing and optical waveguide device testing, compatible with the 14-pin butterfly package.
Die bumping and flip-chipSolder or gold stud bumps on loose dies. Flip-chip attachment for reduced package footprint, improved electrical/thermal performance, and multi-technology integration. Chip-to-board flip chipping is available at 3IT at the Université de Sherbrooke. For more info, consult the design guide.
Parylene CoatingFor applications requiring electrical insulation or biocompatibility.
Laser-assisted cleavingFor siphotonics and silicon-based chips. SOI substrates, thin top silicon layer, facet coupling, with cleaving along vertical plane of the waveguide and singulation of specific area of a chip.

Custom Packaging and Assembly Sample Service List

Package Type
Hermetic or Vacuum packagingSealed atmosphere within a ceramic or metal package
Photonic packaging in a 14-pin butterfly packagePhotonic component packaging with DC/RF connection, high-precision fibre coupling, thermal monitoring, and thermoelectric cooling
Complete/selective bond wire encapsulationCustom wire bonding for single or multi-die applications. Complete or donut-shaped glob top to protect bond wires and the die from mechanical and environmental influences or to provide controlled environmental access to the die
 Die-on-boardDirect connections of bare dies to a substrate can be made through wire bonding
 Die stackingMultiple dies can be stacked using combination of wire bond and flip-chip.
