State-of-the-art electronics assemblies use a conductive hot melt adhesive screened on a flexible mylar or kapton substrate to make board-to-board or board-to-LCD interconnections. While these systems enjoy an order of magnitude reduction in height over standard elastomeric interconnect systems, they do have two ma- jor draw-backs which are, difficulty in alignment and poor peel strength characteristic of hot melt adhesives.
