Abstract

Ceramic circuit components are manufactured by dividing a single ceramic substrate into a plurality of individual circuit components. Microminiature ceramic modules are formed by conventionally depositing elements 10, which can be resistors, capacitors or inductors, onto ceramic substrate 11. The latter has preformed in it a pair of opposite V-shaped grooves 12. Connector pins 13 are inserted into substrate 11. Pins 13, upon insertion, are straight as shown by phantom lines 13A. However, subsequent to insertion, the pins are bent through three 90 degrees angles. The module is then split in two by a wedge-shaped tool to provide a pair of components. The latter can be inserted into a circuit board having a suitable pattern of holes for receiving the connector pins of the modules.

Forming Ceramic Components

Ceramic circuit components are manufactured by dividing a single ceramic substrate into a plurality of individual circuit components. Microminiature ceramic modules are formed by conventionally depositing elements 10, which can be resistors, capacitors or inductors, onto ceramic substrate 11. The latter has preformed in it a pair of opposite V-shaped grooves 12. Connector pins 13 are inserted into substrate 11. Pins 13, upon insertion, are straight as shown by phantom lines 13A. However, subsequent to insertion, the pins are bent through three 90 degrees angles. The module is then split in two by a wedge-shaped tool to provide a pair of components. The latter can be inserted into a circuit board having a suitable pattern of holes for receiving the connector pins of the modules. The three 90 degrees bends in each pin 13 act to rigidly fix such pin to the module. Section 14 of each pin acts as a standoff for providing spacing between substrate 11 and the circuit board.
