The paper presents the application of two advanced thick‐film techniques: etching of fired thick‐films and photoimaging of photosensitive thick‐films for fabrication bandpass microwave filters operating in the frequency range from 6 to 14 GHz. Modified screen printing through ultra‐thin calendered screens is used for comparative goals. Advanced techniques are combined with novel thick‐film conductors including photosensitive pastes and etchable pastes.

The International Electronic Components Show in Paris in November, 1983, provided the occasion for a very successful meeting of ISHM‐France which attracted 170 attendees. The following presentations were given:
In constructing a model of interaction among ethnic groups in multicultural societies we adopt a humanistic sociological perspective. This is the name given to that orientation in sociology which in Poland and the United States has been associated with the names of Florian Znaniecki, William I. Thomas and Robert M. MacIver. This school has emphasised the need ‘to accept human values and activities as facts, just as human agents themselves accept them’ (1), and stressed the need to interpret all social and cultural activities from the standpoint of the actors themselves, and not merely that of the outside observer.
Eighty‐five participants attended the 4th ISHM Display meeting at the Jaarbeurs Congress Centre in Utrecht on 16 October, 1986. The programme of the day started with the annual general membership meeting of the Benelux Chapter. The chairman, Mr T. Kwikkers, gave a short review of the state of affairs of ISHM‐Benelux and of the activities of the last year. He mentioned the temporary enlargement of the executive committee to give a new generation a chance to gain experience in the ISHM organisation and to take up some new activities. In order to raise publicity for ISHM and Hybrid Circuits a new brochure has been designed and a set of material for demonstration purposes was collected. With the material every member of the chapter can easily set up a presentation for schools or customers. This year ISHM‐Benelux has grown from 85 to 100 members and enjoys a healthy financial situation. Next year again emphasis will be put on public relations. Professor R. Govaerts signified that he was no longer available for a position in the executive committee. As Prof. Govaerts has been very active and stimulating for the ISHM‐Benelux Chapter from its foundation in 1976 up to now, the general membership meeting decided to appoint him as (the first) honorary member of this chapter. Except for Professor Govaerts, the sitting executive committee, consisting of 15 members, was re‐elected for another year. After the European conferences in Bournemouth and Hamburg the ISHM‐Benelux chapter is asked to organise the 1991 Conference. The executive committee is already looking out for candidates for a function in the organising committee, which must be formed in the coming year.

Manufacturing of thin film potentiometers involves using very special substrates, usually with complicated shapes and explicit dimensional tolerance. Commonly, such substrates should possess holes and recesses for assembling of the terminals as well as for mounting into housing. Particular difficulties are connected with the labour and time consumption necessary for forming of the molten glass, and limited utilisation of the glass substrates for potentiometer bodies. On the other hand, this material is the best one for the thin film elements. To solve these problems with the objective of producing inexpensive glass substrates for potentiometers, different tests were carried out with moulded elements made from glass powder. The aim of this research was the optimisation of a glass frit granulation and composition of the softening agent (plasticiser) as well as a choice of the temperature profile of firing of the moulded pieces to guarantee the precise structure of the substrate, essential for its application in thin film technology.

I was an invited speaker to the ISHM‐Benelux meeting. As I arrived early, I also sat in on the committee meeting as an observer. Jos B. Peeters was the outgoing president and the incoming committee was widened to about 15 members compared with the previous 6. Following the unanimous election of all those nominated, the committee reconvened and elected Mr Kwikkers as the new president of ISHM‐Benelux. He is a professor at the Technische Hogeschole in Delft.

‘Soldering and Cleaning in Electronics’ international conference, including an exposition, took place in Brno on 12–13 October 1993. The conference was organised by SMT‐Info, together with the ISHM‐Czech and Slovak Chapter. The purpose of this common action was to bring together the professionals in surface mount technology and thick film technology. In the framework of the conference, in which 130 home and foreign delegates participated, the annual meeting of the ISHM‐Czech and Slovak Chapter took place.
Gives introductory remarks about chapter 1 of this group of 31 papers, from ISEF 1999 Proceedings, in the methodologies for field analysis, in the electromagnetic community. Observes that computer package implementation theory contributes to clarification. Discusses the areas covered by some of the papers ‐ such as artificial intelligence using fuzzy logic. Includes applications such as permanent magnets and looks at eddy current problems. States the finite element method is currently the most popular method used for field computation. Closes by pointing out the amalgam of topics.

The purpose of this paper is to present an accurate and efficient hybrid method for the calculation of the inductance of a coil and its inductance change due to deformed turns using numerical methods.
The paper opted for finite element method coupled with analytical method (FCA) to accurately calculate the inductance of a coil, which is used as reference value. An algorithm with a power function is presented to approximate the partial inductance matrix with the purpose of obtaining the percentage change of the inductance due to deformed turns by using the partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) with an approximated model and an optimization process. The presented method is successfully validated by the numerical results.
The paper provides a systematic investigation of the inductance of an arbitrary shaped coil and shows how to accurately and efficiently evaluate the inductance change of a coil due to its deformed turns. It suggests that the inductance of a coil can be accurately calculated by using FCA and its percentage change due to deformed turns can be efficiently calculated by using the PEEC_Approximation.
As this research is for the magnetostatics, the skin- and proximity-effects have not been taken into account.
The paper includes implication for the worst-case analysis of the coil’s inductance due to mechanical damage or manufacturing tolerance.
This paper fulfills an identified need to study how the inductance change of a coil can be obtained accurately and efficiently.
