Design Consideration in Thick Film Hybrid Microcircuits Layout 680801
Translation from a schematic to fabrication of a thick film hybrid microcircuit requires a knowledge of both circuit and process design. A lack of information in proper layout procedures often results in circuits which are unnecessarily difficult to fabricate. Design guidelines are given which aid in optimization of the circuit layout. Optimum geometries are discussed with particular emphasis on resistors. Examples of circuits are given from schematic to the finished product to illustrate the design layout procedure.
