  • Patent number: 5598136
    Abstract: A chip coil includes an insulating substrate on which a spiral coil conductor and first and second terminal electrodes are formed. The coil conductor and the terminal electrodes are made by forming a conductive film on the whole of both main surfaces of the insulating substrate and then etching the same. A first insulation film made of polyimide or polyamide is formed on the insulating substrate so as to cover the coil conductor and the terminal electrodes. The first insulation film is etched such that portions corresponding to the terminal electrodes are removed and a throughhole is formed at a portion corresponding in position to the inner most end of the coil conductor. A further conductive film is formed on the first insulation film and etched so as to form a connecting conductor, the ends of which are respectively connected to the inner most end of the coil conductor and the second terminal electrode through the throughhole.

  • Patent number: 5464520
    Abstract: Silicide targets for sputtering which have an area ratio of silicon phases that appear on the sputter surface of no more than 23%, and a density of at least 99%, with a deformed layer partly removed from the surface to attain a surface roughness of from more than 0.05 .mu.m to 1 .mu.m, preferably with the number of coarse silicon phases at least 10 .mu.m in diameter that appear on the sputter surface being at most 10/mm.sup.2. The reduction of early-stage particle generation, in turn, reduces secondary particle generation, thus realizing the reduction of particle generation at both early stage and stabilized stage. A Si powder having a maximum particle diameter of no more than 20 .mu.m is mixed with a metal powder having a maximum particle diameter of no more than 60 .mu.m, in a rather Si-lower mixing ratio. A silicide powder is synthesized from the mixture and hot pressed, the sintered compact being machined and surface treated for the removal of the deformed layer.
