3D Glass Solutions (3DGS) is an innovative RF passive device design and manufacturing company that develops and builds novel, high-frequency 3D components in its brand new, state-of-the-art, 40,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility. Leveraging the unique properties of our patented APEX® glass-ceramic material, 3DGS technology enables performance not possible with traditional 2D components. The result is passive components with superior electrical performance and ultra-low transmission loss at high frequencies ranging from 1 to 200 GHz. Using traditional semiconductor processes, 3DGS produces cost-effective, high-precision, high-volume-scale components that meet the needs of consumer, commercial and mil/aero system designers.
Passive components including antennas, baluns, filters, inductors, capacitors and couplers, among others, are integral to the efficiency of RF circuits and designs. Using 3DGS’ design tools and manufacturing capability, circuit designers now have the flexibility to integrate multiple dielectric constants, including air. Uniquely, the use of air in passive component design allows for very high performance at high frequencies (>1 GHz) which is necessary for next-generation commercial RF applications such as 5G, autonomous vehicle technology, high speed data, photonics, and military/aerospace.
The same technology also allows 3DGS to create many non-RF components that are difficult, if not impossible, to manufacture in glass using traditional methods.
Now ISO 9001 and AS9100 Certified
3DGS has been awarded both AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certification for the design and manufacture of passive devices in glass. This includes Integrated Passive Devices (IPDs), mmWave Filters, WiFi Couplers, RF Inductors and Capacitors.
Both AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 are internationally recognized standards that ensure 3DGS products and services meet the needs of customers through an effective quality management system. The AS9100 quality management system is considered the highest international standard for quality assurance across the aviation, space and defense industries.
