The bonding technology is an essential process step when encapsulating sensors and actuators or assembling systems consisting of several substrates. It determines the yield, functionality, long-term stability and life-time of the product.
The MNT offers a wide variety of bonding technologies enabling the joining of various materials:
Our services include the analysis of bonded interfaces as well as suitable test procedures to determine the joints. Mechanical test methods include:
- Micro Chevron Test to determine the fracture strength and binding energy according to the SEMI Standard MS5-1211, and
- Shear strength test to determine the maximum shear strength
Leakage rates of hermetic cavities predict the probable lifetime of a product. Those tests are done according to MIL-STD-883.
