The use of thick films in microelectronics has increased in an impressive way during the last years. In contrast to this, thin films have shown a less spectacular but nevertheless steady evolution which concerned mainly more efficient deposition methods (planar magnetron) as well as higher quality films and thus better components and circuits. The present paper aims at illustrating this by some selected examples.
