A system (hardware/software) has been implemented which makes it possible, taking advantage of existing programs with the addition of suitable interfaces and appropriate software modules, to automate the design of thick film hybrid circuits.

This system, named FLASH (Fast Layout Approach System for Hybrids), tends to optimize circuit production yields, by basing the design on their degree of complexity in relation with the printing/firing/trimming cycle.
