  • Publication number: 20230049007
    Abstract: Micro light-emitting diodes (LED) are distanced from a mirror layer that reflects light emitted by the LEDs to increase the light extraction efficiency of the LEDs. In some embodiments, micro LEDs are electrically coupled to the mirror layer by vias positioned at an end of the LED positioned proximate to the mirror layer. In other embodiments, a conductive layer is positioned adjacent to an electrode of multiple micro LEDs and a pillar contacts the conductive layer at a location where the conductive layer is not positioned adjacent to a micro LED electrode. Vias and pillars allow the mirror height to be increased relative to structures where micro LEDs extend into a mirror layer. Increasing the mirror height can reduce the amount of destructive interference at a release layer caused by reflections of LED-emitted light by the mirror layer when the release layer is ablated via laser irradiation.

  • Patent number: 11022792
    Abstract: Aspects of the embodiments are directed to coupling a permanent magnet (PM) with a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) device. In embodiments, an adhesive, such as an epoxy or resin or other adhesive material, can be used to move the PM towards the MEMS device to magnetically couple the PM to the MEMS device. In embodiments, an adhesive that is configured to shrink up on curing can be applied (e.g., using a pick and place tool) to a location between the MEMS device and the PM. As a result of curing, the adhesive can pull the PM towards the MEMS device. In embodiments, an adhesive that is configured to expand as a result of curing can be applied to a location between the PM and a sidewall of the chassis. As a result of curing, the adhesive can push the PM towards the MEMS device. The adhesive can also secure the PM in place.

  • Publication number: 20190002735
    Abstract: Aspects of the embodiments are directed to an optoelectronic device that includes one or more pressure sensitive adhesives to secure components during an assembly process. The optoelectronic device includes an electromagnetic interference/radio frequency interference shield. The shield can include an aperture for permitting light to enter a photodetector. An infrared filter can be secured to the shield using a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) film. The PSA film can be a templated film that is double sided. A PSA film can also be used to secure the shield to the printed circuit board (PCB) of the optoelectronic device. To promote electromagnetic conduction between the shield and the PCB, the PSA film can include additives.

  • Publication number: 20180364438
    Abstract: Aspects of the embodiments are directed to an optical component with at least one substantially flat surface. The flat surface can be used as a surface onto which a pick and place tool can contact the optical component for assembly. The optical component can be formed from a mold that includes an insertable pin. For example, the mold can include a three-piece mold: a core and a cavity can be brought together to define a negative space conforming to a shape of the optical component. The core and the cavity, when brought together, also define an opening. The opening can have a shape that conforms to a desired cross-sectional shape of the flat surface of the optical component. An insertable pin, with a substantially flat end surface, can be inserted through the opening during the mold process to form the substantially flat surface.

  • Patent number: 10049971
    Abstract: An apparatus is described that includes a substrate and a mold compound disposed on the substrate. The semiconductor die is embedded within the mold compound and is electrically coupled to lands on the substrate. Solder balls are disposed around the semiconductor die on the substrate. Each of the solder balls have a solid coating thereon. The solid coating contains a cleaning agent to promote its solder ball's coalescence with another solder ball. Respective vias are formed in the mold compound that expose the solder balls and their respective solid coatings. In combined or alternate embodiments outer edges of the mold compound have smaller thickness than regions of the mold compound between the vias and the semiconductor die. In combined or alternate embodiments micro-channels exist between the solder balls and the mold compound.
