8 am - 11:20 am

This round up of current topics features several papers on emerging methods of fine line patterning on ceramic and organic substrates and several other current issues. These include new paste systems for high thermal conductivity Aluminum Nitride substrates, an analysis of failure mechanisms in conductors on ceramic and a method of creating low impedance thin film decoupling caps for high-speed digital circuits.
