Simple Package for Integrated Optical Receiver

      Described is a packaging solution for receiver chips.

      A simple package was needed to mount a fiber-optic receiver
chip incorporating a Metal-Semiconductor-Metal (MSM) photodetector,
integrated with preamplifier circuitry.  The receiver package
solution is comprised of a standard TO-46 4-leaded header and a
matching TO-46 flat window lid or cap.  The window allows for optical
signals to be coupled to the MSM photodetector.  The die is attached
directly to the header, without the use of a submount.  A few wire
bonds complete the package.  The following figure depicts the simple
receiver package.
