A hybrid (composite) integrated circuit element comprises a substrate, a thin film type integrated circuit formed on a substrate through a thin film process, and a lamination type passive circuit element such as a capacitor, inductor, resitance and a combination thereof formed on the integrated circuit. During the firing of passive circuit element in a hydrogen atmosphere, the semiconductor layer which constitutes the integrated circuit is also heat annealed. Various substrates can be used as the substrate, for example, quartz, ceramic and a cheap semiconductor substrate which has not been treated with a mirror-grinding by the use of a glass layer.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
