Paper Abstract

In the past, Boeing had successfully developed and produced the hermetic ARINC 636 fiber optic transmitter and receiver modules for the PLANET System in the Boeing 777 commercial airplanes. These hermetic fiber optic modules had demonstrated over 4 millions aggregate flight hours with zero failure; the hermetic fiber seal technology is a key contributor to this outstanding reliability record. Recently, we have investigated failure mechanisms in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hermetic mini-dil (dual-in-line) laser diode modules; and developed new hermetic fiber seal process for low cost mini-dil form factor packages. In addition, we are also developing cost effective hermetic multi-channel fiber optic array modules technology for aerospace applications.
