Described is the design of a semi-rigid, non-conducting, thin film overlay that fits the perimeter measurements of a multichip module. The overlay contains the proper vertical contours in either simple form or other geometric contours to accurately accommodate the geometry of the chip carrier pattern, see the Figure. The "waffle" characteristic allows the film to be congruent with the surface of the multichip carrier.
