Electrical contact resistance was evaluated after exposure at elevated temperatures in air or in humidity. Different hard-Au-electroplating systems were also used for comparisons. It showed that the inlay system had superior electrical contact characteristics than the electroplating systems. CLICK HERE TO ACCESS FULL TEXT VERSION OF THIS PAPER.
