A thinned-CCD mosaic was fabricated from four Loral 2048 X 2048 edge-buttable CCDs. Thinning was performed on the whole wafer with subsequent dicing and handling facilitated by bonding the thinned wafer to a glass plate. Packaging of the devices involved a `flip-chip' wire-bonding technique followed by chemical dissolution of the glass support. The fabrication process was designed to minimize the gaps between devices and retain a high degree of flatness in the finished CCDs.
