As the hybrid market changes, many hybrid companies are being forced to adjust to reduced defence budgets and to the encroachment of epoxy board based SMT on traditional hybrid areas. This paper considers the establishment of an intelligent power module technology as a viable way to utilise the strengths of hybrid technology, in a field where there is an expanding market and, at present, not too much competition. The basic techniques are described, some of the potential pitfalls are highlighted, and the likely scale of technical and personnel investment is indicated.
