The human body is a harsh environment; bodily fluids are highly conductive and contain many chemical and biochemical species that are potentially harmful to implanted electronics and MEMS devices and components. At the same time, the body is a complex delicate living system that may be harmed by the material, shape, and size of the implant devices. The package is the outmost part of the implant that interfaces with the body; it has to protect the device from bodily fluids while protecting the body from any harmful effects of the packaged implant device.
