Abstract

See full text

Methods for the fabrication of an array of electrical connectors are provided. A conductive layer is formed into an array of generally-shaped electrical contacts which are interconnected with original structural material. The relative positioning of the contacts is reinforced. The original structural material is then removed, and the array is attached to a substrate.
