  • Patent number: 10721819
    Abstract: An electronic module has a first circuit board element, a second circuit board element, and a spacer. Together, the first circuit board element, the second circuit board element, and the spacer enclose a central cavity, in which components attached to the first circuit board element are accommodated. Respective annular circumferential microstructures are provided on a surface of the first circuit board element directed outward and on a surface of the second circuit board element directed outward, adjacent to an outer periphery of the first circuit board element. In this region, a sealing ring is formed, which has a form-closed connection to both the first and the second circuit board element by means of the microstructures of the first and the second circuit board element.

  • Patent number: 10600954
    Abstract: A technical object of the present invention is to devise a method by which bonding strength between an element base and a sealing material layer can be increased without thermal degradation of a member to be housed inside, to thereby improve long-term reliability of a hermetic package. A method of producing a hermetic package of the present invention includes the steps of: preparing a ceramic base and forming a sealing material layer on the ceramic base; preparing a glass substrate and arranging the ceramic base and the glass substrate so that the glass substrate is brought into contact with the sealing material layer on the ceramic base; and irradiating the sealing material layer with laser light from a glass substrate side to seal the ceramic base and the glass substrate with each other through intermediation of the sealing material layer, to thereby provide a hermetic packages.

  • Patent number: 8436259
    Abstract: An electrical box described herein allows for separate wire connection areas for low voltage and line voltage wiring within a single box. The electrical box includes a voltage divider positioned within the box that divides the box into two distinct portions, thereby providing a low voltage wiring connection area that is separate from the line voltage wiring connection area. The electrical box also includes multiple knockouts, each covering an opening that provides a passageway from the interior of the box to the exterior of the box. At least one knockout and associated opening are positioned to provide access to the low voltage wiring connection area and another knockout and associate opening is positioned along to the box to provide access to the line voltage wiring connection area. The box provides an electrical junction for a luminaire, such as a downlight, or other electrical device.
