Expertise in micro-packing—smaller, faster, more reliable

Zarlink’s Advanced Packaging division delivers a competitive advantage for its customers by miniaturising electronic components to create smaller, smarter and more reliable circuit solutions with a board footprint significantly smaller than individual ICs.

Proven Micro-Packaging Expertise

With a track record of success in designing and developing Advanced Packaging modules, Zarlink’s micro-packing expertise is at the heart of mission-critical and cutting-edge medical, telecom, industrial, aerospace and military applications.

  • Key technology in ultra-reliable applications, such as pacemakers, defibrillators and hearing aids

  • Designed and assembled a module for the world’s smallest pacemaker

  • Developed patented in-body antenna technology for medical products

  • Designed world’s smallest network timing module for Stratum 3

  • applications

  • Developed “circuit on steel” packaging technology that halves the footprint of motor drive controllers and enhances reliability

  • Developed and manufactured low-cost microwave splitter components

Packaging Technologies

Zarlink Advanced Packaging specialises in the custom design and manufacture of electronic packaging and supports all major technologies, including:

  • Hermetic die packaging
