Thick Film II
Chair: Paul Galletta, Teledyne Electronic Technologies
8 am - 11 am

Thick film and thin technology are the base line building blocks for most of the microelectronic devices in existence today. This session will highlight the newer aspects of these technologies and how it can support your needs from D/C to light. These technologies have reinvented itself to support a whole new series of product lines that meet both the cost and performance needs of those products. Please join us in a lively session that will explore new approaches for this 25 plus years old technology.
