There are reported proposals to develop low tem- perature inorganic (glass/ceramic) coating on alu- minum substrates through so-gel or plasma processes and further to form conductor patterns on planar surfaces. The concepts allow for the use of alumi- num as a low-cost, thermally conductive substrate material, but do not address the formation of her- metic, electrical feed-throughs to allow exterior mounting ofa connector.
