  • Publication number: 20050129370
    Abstract: The invention concerns an integrated intermediate ferrule comprising an optical port and optoelectronic circuits functionally interposed between the optical port and an electric port. To avoid having to place a reflecting mirror causing optical losses, the integrated circuit for detection and optoelectronic conversion is arranged perpendicular to a rectilinear path of the light signal in the ferrule. Such an arrangement eliminates the need for a mirror and makes it easy to obtain accurate setting of the alignment of the optical port and the optoelectronic conversion circuits and finally provides efficient cooling of said optoelectronic conversion circuits.

  • Patent number: 6767142
    Abstract: An optoelectric device (1) has an emitter and/or receiver (5) on a first element (13) of a printed circuit (2) of this device. Moreover, the device has at least one second printed-circuit element (32) such that the second element is not in alignment with the first element. And consequently, the device provides for the first element and the second element to be applied against separate and secant faces of a heatsink (4) of the device. The function of this heatsink is to evacuate the heat emitted by an optic connection provided on the device. The heatsink also permits supporting and holding the different portions of the printed circuit.

  • Patent number: 5801449
    Abstract: An integrated circuit (IC) package (10), having an integrated circuit (11) and a connecting substrate (12) comprising an insulating film (13), one side of which carries conductors (14) and the other side of which carries balls (15) connected to the respective conductors by means of via holes (16) in the film. The balls (15) are fixed directly to said via holes, the base of which is formed by the respective conductors. The balls are preferably made of a remeltable material such as tin lead and the fixation can be made initially by an adhesive substance. The process for connecting two connecting substrates (12, 22) by means of balls (15), one of which substrates comprises a film (13), one side of which is provided with conductors (14) and the other side of which is provided with via holes (16), consists of fixing the balls directly to the conductors in the via holes by remelting the balls. The balls can be soldered or prefixed by an adhesive substance to connecting pads (23) of a board (22).
