Non-noble metal thick film materials have been the topic of several recent papers. 11 ,13 ,14,15 This paper will focus on the first non-noble metal thick film system comprising conductors, dielectrics and most important, resistors for commercial use. Processing and performance data are presented in detail to illustrate the capabilities of these new materials. Circuit applications information is presented wherever possible. This new class of materials will enable the microelectronics industry to exploit new market opportunities previously unavailable due to the high costs of precious metal materials.
