  • Publication number: 20210230041
    Abstract: A method is provided for producing a patterned glass wafer for packaging electronic devices in a wafer assembly. The method includes placing a glass sheet between two mold halves and heating until the glass sheet softens, while the mold halves are pressed against one another so that the glass sheet is reshaped and forms a patterned glass wafer. The first mold half has an array of projections and the second mold half has an array of recesses. The mold halves are arranged and shaped so that the recesses and projections oppose each other. The projections introduce cavities into the glass sheet during the reshaping and with the glass flowing into the recesses of the second mold half during the reshaping. The recesses are deep enough for the glass to at least partially not come in contact therewith and to form a convexly shaped glass surface in each recess.

  • Publication number: 20110254030
    Abstract: A light emitting diode (LED) package is disclosed which has an integral reflector for improving performance. The package includes a substrate for supporting the LED. A frame is formed on the top surface of the substrate surrounding the LED. During fabrication, a liquid compound is dispensed into the frame in a manner to surround the LED without covering the active area of the LED. The liquid compound includes particles for scattering light. The top surface of the liquid compound is curved due to surface tension. The curvature remains after the compound is cured. In a preferred embodiment, an encapsulating material is used to cover the LED and the compound. The reflector functions to increase the light output from the LED package.
