Hybrid Process Overview


With extensive experienced in bringing high technology RF and Microwave Microelectronic components such as Synthesizers, OCXOs, VCXOs, TCXOs, VCTCXOs, DROs, Frequency Translators, Clock Oscillators, Crystals, and portable signal generators. The frequency spectrum of our devices cover the range from 30Hz to 26GHz and our products are used in process control, industrial, marine, aerospace, industrial and military applications. GED maintains a position of leadership by continually expanding its capabilities. Today, the rapid evolution of microelectronic technology is a significant factor in the development of our customers equipment. Microelectronics provides greater design flexibility and higher performance plus faster development and lower production costs in small quantities, shorter time from concept to prototype, close quality control, improved reliability and a second source of supply.

Hybrids are microelectronic circuits fabricated by a dynamic technology, constantly evolving and expanding. Hybrids are so designated because their components are generally a combination of active and passive elements mounted on an insulating substrate with interconnect pattern as listed below:
Thick Film interconnect on 96% alumina ceramic, or aluminum nitride
Thin Film interconnect on 99% alumina ceramic, or aluminum nitride
Organic PWB (Duroid, Polyimide, TMM10)
Low Temperature Cofired Ceramic (LTCC)
High Temperature Cofired Ceramic (HTCC)
Silicon (MEMs, 3-D, through-silicon via (TSV))
This construction (see Figure 1) offers a method of fabricating a wide variety of electronic circuits in a form that is extremely compact and reliable.

Hybrid packages can accommodate a wide variety of passive and active components in die and packaged form. This includes thick and thin film resistors, single layer, multilayer and tantalum capacitors, inductor chips, transformers, opto-couplers, and semiconductors ranging from diodes, silicon and SiGe ICs, GaAs, GaN, and SiC transistors and integrated circuits to microprocessors and microcontrollers.
