Hermetic Ceramic and Metal Microelectronic Packages by Egide

Egide is a leading-edge manufacturer of high reliability hermetic packages, housings and enclosures. Founded in France in 1986, Egide has evolved to become a marquee name in the world of hermetic packages for critical applications with manufacturing plants in Europe and the US.

Certified to ISO 9001:2015, Egide offers consistently high quality products that are manufactured in an environmentally-friendly environment. All Egide products are manufactured to the industry-standard MIL-STD-883.

Egide designs and manufactures hermetic packages to protect and interconnect fragile electronic or photonic ICs, which are sensitive to harsh thermal, atmospheric, or magnetic environments. These packages are the product of complex expertise, drawing upon several disciplines: material structure, particularly specialised alloys, chemistry and surface treatment, mechanics and thermodynamics, electronics, optoelectronics, and high frequency modeling.

Egide is one of the few companies to master all of the technologies surrounding the two types of material used for these packages in the world today: glass-to-metal and ceramic-to-metal.

In its state-of-the-art manufacturing in Bollène, France, Egide manufactures both ceramic-sealed and glass-sealed hermetic packages. A 500 sq-metre Class 10,000 cleanroom designed specifically for treatment of raw ceramic ensures that the entire ceramic manufacturing process is completely controlled in-house. The same facility provides assembly, surface treatment and full control of glass-sealed packages, and includes Egide’s own glass bead manufacturing process.
