Unfiltered & Filtered Feedthroughs

Integer specializes in the development of custom hermetically sealed ceramic implantable feedthroughs ideal for active implantable medical devices. Learn more about our new feedthrough technology below.

mCONNECT multi-layer alumina feedthrough technology

The Greatbatch Medical™ mCONNECT™ leverages a proprietary High Temperature Co-Fired Ceramic (HTCC) forming method to create a robust and reliable technology platform for supporting advancements in neurostimulators, cardiac rhythm systems and other novel devices. This technology enables:

  • Miniaturized devices
  • High channel density
  • Production efficiencies
  • Reduced lead-times

Learn more on mCONNECT and its benefits.

Our feedthroughs support industry standard traditional full lead-wire requirements. Using our custom design capabilities, along with industry-leading engineering know-how, we have produced an hermetically sealed feedthrough that ensures body fluids don’t contact internal device components.

With mCONNECT’s HTCC technology, we offer these innovative feedthrough platforms:

Traditional full lead-wire

Recognized as today’s industry standard, it offers a drop-in replacement solution with custom designed lead-wires.

Traditional Hemi Leadless


Compatible with existing header attachment methods, while eliminating lead-wire on the device side.

Hemi Feedthrough


Eliminates traditional lead-wire to offer a significant reduction in footprint, while supporting increased channel counts.

Feedthrough Leadless

Check out the Custom Feedthrough tab to learn more on the custom design options available to meet your medical device requirements.

Our line of highly reliable surface mounted broadband filtered feedthroughs are designed to use high-dialectic-constant ceramic capacitors to provide device protection against EMI produced by electromagnetic emitters over extremely broad radio frequency (RF) ranges. This allows device makers to offer patients more freedom and peace of mind.

We customize our precision-filtered feedthroughs using efficient shapes and sizes for traditional full lead-wire and hemi-leadless feedthrough platforms.
