Thick-film, silver-palladium conductor compositions with improved mechanical properties have been developed in the Johnson Matthey Research Laboratories. These conductors are capable of retaining high adhesion strengths using tin-lead solder after prolonged storage at elevated temperature. This article is based upon a contribution to the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers’ Conference held at the University of Technology, Loughborough, in September.
