Ceramic hotplates based on thick-film and LTCC technology
Ceramic and glass hotplates are useful for a wide range of applications, such as solid- oxide fuel cells, microreactors and sensors. This work reviews different encountered hotplate geometries, materials and applications. Simple devices may use standard thick-film technology on elongated substrates. On the other hand, LTCC, due to its excellent structuration characteristics, allows much more design freedom and is the technology of choice for achieving high temperatures in a compact package.
