Being the best at ESD safe packaging…
It’s always fun and rewarding to be the best at something. Back in 1978 our founder chose static control packaging when he invented Corstat – the very first conductive corrugated packaging. We led then and we are still the leader today. And quite frankly, we like being the leader. Through the years we’ve tackled and solved thousands of static issues and developed a lot of expertise in creating static control solutions for the problems our customers face moving circuit boards and components.

Back in the day…
We offered Corstat, Corstat and more Corstat to shield products from static. Sometimes we got creative and added foam for extra cushioning. Today Corstat is still the most trusted static shielding box and the foundation of many of our static control solutions, but we’ve also grown in our manufacturing capabilities and ESD package design creativity.

Today’s CCI is about design, vertical integration…and a whole lot of inventory
To remain the leader in static safe packaging and handling we’ve evolved into an organization that is able to manufacture and design the widest range of ESD solutions. CCI is proud to design, stock, and manufacture…

  • Thermoforming ESD safe plastics
  • Conductive fluted plastic Durastat totes, custom printing and die cutting
  • Injection molded conductive boxes and parts
  • Proprietary permanent ESD foams
  • Complete package assemblies
  • In-house tooling and rapid prototyping.

And now, we introduce the exciting new Tacki Pak technology.

Our vertical integration puts us in the position to choose the most cost effective way to meet your needs. We take pride in providing unique solutions that match the way you want your system to work. When you add our package design and manufacturing expertise with our raw material inventory and stock selection, you have CCI’s formula for success.

Our people...
Our employees are what make CCI one of the great little companies of America. Walk around CCI and you will find most have 10-20 years of experience or more, solving problems similar to the ones you are facing. So, if you have a need in the area of ESD safe packaging - they have handled it. They are here today because they enjoy being part of the best static busting team around.

It starts with listening to you…
You understand your product and your flow. When you explain what you want to have happen, we put our design, manufacturing and ESD expertise to work. Around CCI the excitement is around making you a cool packages that protect critical components and save you money. You may find the perfect solution in our stock catalog of nearly 1000 part numbers – or we can work together to design and develop a custom solution to precisely fit your product and handling situation. Either way, you always get what you need at CCI.

Connect with the ESD experts…
Don’t mess around with static. Don’t risk the safety of your product on a packaging guy that doesn’t get ESD. You need an expert. Take a look at the many solutions here at corstat.com or get in touch with one of our CCI customer service people and they will get you started.

GBC Corporate Spotlight: ALLVIAALLVIA

In the past people thought that through silicon vias or TSVs was merely a concept, but today it is a reality. In truth the Co-Founder and current CEO of ALLVIA, Inc., Sergey Savastiouk coined the term TSV in 1996 as part of his original business plan.

The article “Moore’s Law - the Z dimension was published in Solid State Technology magazine in January 2000. This article outlined the roadmap of the TSV development as a transition from 2.5-D chip stacking to wafer level stacking in the future. In one of the sections titled Through Silicon Vias, Dr. Savastiouk wrote: “Investment in technologies that proved both wafer-level vertical miniaturization (wafer thinning) and preparation for vertical integration (through silicon vias) makes good sense.” He continued: “by removing the arbitrary 2-D conceptual barrier associated with Moore’s Law, we can open up a new dimension in ease of design, test, and manufacture of IC packages. When we need it the most – for portable computing, memory cards, smart cards, cellular phones, and other uses – we can follow Moore’s Law into the Z dimension.”

After ten years of TSV trials and errors as well as intensive work with customers, another article was published in Solid State Technology magazine in December of 2008 “Moore’s Law – the Z dimension: a Decade Later” where analysis of a delay in adoption of TSV was presented. Dr. Sergey Savastiouk wrote about the last decade in TSVs: “Then the expectation was that the acceptance of TSV technology would be faster than what has since happened. Drawing parallels with the history of flip chip technology may explain why it is happening slowly….There are five steps to be analyzed: feasibility, niche applications, reliability, cost reduction, and high-volume production”.

In 2009 ALLVIA focused on development of silicon interposers with embedded capacitors. Several different dielectrics have been evaluated for both manufacturing ability and reliability. In 2010 the company offered interposers with and without embedded passives as a commercial service. Over the past decade, ALLVIA continued to accumulate invaluable experience and to file for numerous patents related to TSV in its applications.

Immediate plans call for ALLVIA to rapidly increase its production capability, to install additional quality and process assurance tools, and to expand its design center.
