Title (EN) CO-FIRED METAL AND CERAMIC COMPOSITE FEEDTHROUGH ASSEMBLIES FOR USE AT LEAST IN IMPLANTABLE MEDICAL DEVICES AND METHODS FOR MAKING THE SAME
(FR) ENSEMBLES DE CONNEXIONS D'INTERFACE À BASE DE COMPOSITE DE MÉTAL ET CÉRAMIQUE CO-CUIT DESTINÉS A ÊTRE UTILISÉS AU MOINS DANS DES DISPOSITIFS MÉDICAUX IMPLANTABLES ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A hermetic interconnect for medical devices is disclosed. In one embodiment, the interconnect includes platinum leads co-fired between alumina substrates to form a monolithic composite that is subsequently bonded into a titanium alloy flange. Both methodology for forming these interconnects as well as specific geometries and compositions are disclosed. Interconnects formed in this fashion enable significant reductions in overall size of the interconnect relative to the number of feedthrough leads as well as substantial improvements in robustness versus currently available technology.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une interconnexion hermétique pour dispositifs médicaux. Selon un mode de réalisation, l'interconnexion comporte des broches de raccordement en platine co-cuites entre des substrats d'alumine pour former un composite monolithique qui est ultérieurement soudé en une bride d'alliage de titane. L'invention concerne à la fois une méthodologie de formation de telles interconnexions ainsi que des géométries et compositions spécifiques. Les interconnexions formées par ces procédés procurent des réductions significatives dans la dimension globale de l'interconnexion par rapport au nombre de broches de raccordement de trous d'interconnexion ainsi que des améliorations sensibles en termes de robustesse au regard de la technologie actuellement disponible.
