Abstract

MC (metallized ceramic) substrates are I/O-pin limited. To increase the size of the MC substrate to overcome this problem would require a large capital expense to upgrade the manufacturing tools and machines to accommodate the larger substrate. The present concept would directly add 52 I/O pins to an MC substrate with the possibility of extending it to 104 added I/O pins. The capital expense would be kept to a minimum because a standard substrate would be used.
