Paper Abstract

A new apparatus is proposed for the package of AlGaInP visible laser diodes (LD) in this paper. Corresponding to the metal-can used in the conventional LD apparatus, plastics and lead-frame are used in this apparatus to reduce its cost. All the chip-mounting and wire- bonding for the apparatus are also modified to accord with the requirement of simplicity and good productivity. An lead-frame with a heat-dissipation tail is specially designed to overcome the poor heat-conductivity problem, which is observed in the common plastic-molded apparatus. The life time of the AlGaInP LD using the new plastic-molded apparatus is about five times longer than that using the common one.
