Hybrid Thick Film Circuit Layout, and Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics: Design and Manufacturing

ID: 723792 Maryland, USA

Request Expert

Expert has worked in the forefront of developing technology in the area of electronic ceramics for over thirty years, ranging from the early high-alumina ceramic substrate refinement for additive and subtractive microelectronic packaging circuit pattern definition to the advanced glass-ceramic substrate materials known as Low-Temperature Cofired Ceramics. He has applied these materials to RF and Microstrip configurations for low-power microelectronics in ceramic multi-conductor layer circuit boards. His innovations have included creation of cavities for containment of chip components, techniques for interconnecting chip components to the conductors within the multilayer structure, low loss, low dielectric constant ceramics for low-power level Microwave ceramic package structures, high-dielectric constant materials for buried passive components (capacitors), and high resistivity conductors for resistors buried within the glass-ceramic three-dimensional structure (body).
