Abstract

Polymer-type hot plug devices can be fabricated on thin wires and at relatively low temperatures as compared to glass based thick film types. Also polymer types can be applied to card edge connectors. These devices are called "hot plug" devices because their resistance prevents undesired current surges when installed under power-on conditions.
