Home Products Microelectronics Packaging Materials Hermetic Packaging Lids Combo-Lids™ PATENTED HERMETIC COVER LID FOR MICROELECTRONIC PACKAGING When hermetic cover lids that can function in the harshest environments are required , Materion’s patented Combo-Lids™ deliver superior sealing to protect high reliability applications in semiconductor, MEMS, crystal oscillator, medical and optical devices from moisture and particulates. HIGH-PERFORMANCE KOVAR™ ALLOY INHIBITS CORROSION The base metal of our Combo-Lids™ is Kovar™ (Alloy 42) which is plated with nickel and gold flash and then tack-welded to a solder preform, usually AuSn (gold-tin) eutectic. The nickel layer inhibits corrosion, while the precious metal (gold) layer promotes solderability and ensures a clean particulate-free surface. Tack-welding the solder preform to the lid conveniently aligns the solder to the perimeter of the lid, simplifying handling and reducing part count. Therefore, Hermetic Combo-Lids™ offer a best-cost solution. PERSONALIZED ASSISTANCE ON LID & FRAME COMPOSITION We have extensive experience in microelectronic packaging for sensitive electronic devices. Our hermetically sealed Combo-Lids™ and frames are available in a range of standard dimensions and tolerances. Our engineers can also offer guidance for customized hermetic cover lid design, frame composition and related tooling.
