Thick Film Technology

Thick film technology is used to produce electronic devices such as surface mount devices, hybrid integrated circuits and sensors.

Thick film circuits are widely used in the automotive industry, both in sensors, e.g. mixture of fuel/air, pressure sensors, engine and gearbox controls, sensor for releasing airbags, ignitors to airbags; common is that high reliability is required, often extended temperature range also along massive thermocycling of circuits without failure.

The manufacture of such devices are an additive process where deposition of several successive layers of conductor, resistors and dieletrica layers onto an electrically insulating substrate using a screen-printing process. A typical thick film process would consist of the following stages:

Famous quotes containing the words technology, thick and/or film:

    Our technology forces us to live mythically, but we continue to think fragmentarily, and on single, separate planes.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    Farewell? a long farewell to all my greatness.
    This is the state of man; today he puts forth
    The tender leaves of hopes, tomorrow blossoms,
    And bears his blushing honors thick upon him:
    The third day comes a frost, a killing frost,
    And when he thinks, good easy man, full surely
    His greatness is a-ripening, nips his root,
    And then he falls as I do.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
    Ingmar Bergman (b. 1918)
