Mounting of I.C.'s on thickfilm circuits by means of patterns on foil of a total thickness of about 30 microns is described. The extreme flexibility of the foil and some well controlled characteristics of the thickfilm process aid soldering of the chip with a reproducible low heat resistance to the substrate in a cheap and reliable way.
