Ceramic Hermetic PackagesCeramic / Hermetic packages are commonly used for applications requiring high performance and high reliability. They can generally withstand higher temperatures than traditional plastic packages, and the relatively low CTE of ceramic materials and the cavity construction also make Ceramic / Hermetic packages ideal for extremely stress-sensitive devices such as MEMs sensors.

Amkor supports a wide range of assembly options for Ceramic / Hermetic packages, including commercial, automotive, and military/aerospace process flows. The assembly line is highly customizable, allowing assembly of a large variety of commonly used Ceramic / Hermetic packages.

Note that ceramic package base and lid can be purchased from several well known suppliers and should be consigned to Amkor for production assembly. Contact your Amkor account management team for more details.
