3DGS designs and manufactures passive devices in glass that include integrated passive devices (IPDs), mmWave filters, WiFi couplers, RF inductors and capacitors that deliver superior performance compared to other devices of similar size and footprint. Collaborating with customers on unique designs, 3DGS manufactures components for power amplifier devices, precision laser diodes, fiber aligners and couplers that are being used in high-speed data centers and servers. Telecom and aerospace applications also benefit from 3DGS technology, where co-development is delivering high gain broadband antennas, substrate integrated waveguides and low loss antenna feed networks designed for satellites, military aircraft and high-speed infrastructure.
3DGS inductors using our patented 3D architecture enable extreme design freedom. High precision ‘windings’ create precise nH values with exceptional Q, which is typically 2x to 3x that of high-performance, coil-wound inductors with superior precision of nH and Q at >1GHz frequency. Common IPC footprints as well as custom designs can be achieved.
3DGS technology allows RF designs to create high performance IPDs. With 3DGS techniques, integration of 3D inductors, MIM capacitors, thin film resistors, resonator cavities and integrated in-part shielding are possible. 3D-designed IPDs eliminate parasitic crossovers and are very low loss.
Antennas with integrated feed networks and baluns can be created with exceptional gain and high isolation to ground. The ability of 3DGS technology to manufacture precise features and ‘floating’ transmission lines means considerably better performance than PCB or LTCC-based structures.
3DGS technology releases designers from 2D device design constraints and their resulting parasitic losses. With the ability to incorporate air cavities that isolate signals from ground and other neighboring signal interference, 3D designs eliminate conventional 2D constraints. Micron-level precision allows for many different design possibilities and the ability to truly integrate components like never before. Contact 3DGS engineers to talk about your application ambitions.
