From lightweight aluminum and titanium to robust Kovar, PA&E designs and manufactures hermetic electronic packages from the material best suited to meet your environmental need.
Aluminum Hermetic Electronic Packages
Aluminum is a lightweight material with high thermal conductivity. PA&E uses precision CNC machining techniques to form aluminum hermetic electronic packages, resulting in an all laser-weldable package, thus eliminating the possibility of solder joint fatigue. These housings can then be integrated with PA&E’s DC connectors, RF connectors, and EMI capacitors. PA&E’s aluminum packaging is hermetic through harsh thermal cycling and is re-workable.
Titanium Electronic Packaging
Like aluminum, titanium is a lightweight material that PA&E puts through a precision CNC machining process to produce hermetic electronic packages that eliminate failure issues associated with solder joint fatigue. Titanium packages are often selected over aluminum alternatives because that material delivers lower CTE. PA&E’s machined titanium housings can also be integrated with PA&E’s DC connectors, RF connectors, and EMI capacitors. PA&E’s titanium packaging is hermetic through harsh thermal cycling and is re-workable.
PA&E’s Kovar hermetic electronic packages have a low CTE, low thermal conductivity and direct sealing capabilities. These precision machined housings can be integrated with PA&E’s DC connectors and RF connectors. While Kovar packaging is well suited for some applications, it is a relatively heavy material, it is not laser weldable (therefore subject to solder joint fatigue) and it can be challenging to rework.
