Abstract

A metal-filled conductive adhesive is screened onto the areas of two dissimilar metals which are to be mechanically and electrically bonded. In printer applications, a flexible cable, such as copper, is to be connected to the m print electrodes, which may be made of tungsten. In the past, a number of techniques have been employed to interconnectors, or sputtering. All such techniques have bee subject to difficulties due to reliability, high cost, or manufacturability.

Interconnection Between Flexible-cable And Tungsten Print Head

A metal-filled conductive adhesive is screened onto the areas of two dissimilar metals which are to be mechanically and electrically bonded. In printer applications, a flexible cable, such as copper, is to be connected to the m print electrodes, which may be made of tungsten. In the past, a number of techniques have been employed to interconnectors, or sputtering. All such techniques have bee subject to difficulties due to reliability, high cost, or manufacturability.

In the present interconnection technique, an electrically conductive metal- filled adhesive is screened onto the faces of the two metals to be joined. The spacing distance between the joined elements depends upon the particular type of conductive adhesive used.
