This article describes the use of swaged pins in a stacked ceramic substrate module used to mount semiconductor chips. In the figure, a ceramic substrate 10 is shown which can mount one or more semiconductor chips (not shown) on the upper surface. The substrate 10 has metal-filled vias 12 each of which terminates in a junction end 14.
