A new microelectronics packaging technique, called Solid logic Technology (SLT), utilizes silicon planar glass-encapsulated transistors and diodes, and graphic arts techniques for producing high-quality, passive components having tight tolerances. The result is a process permitting the low-cost realization of a variety of versatile, high-performance circuit modules. The salient features of SLT are described: the unique form of the semiconductor devices, the module fabrication process, and…
