Manufacture of electronic hybrid circuits, showing an operator setting up the gold wire bonding machine for automatic operation. Hybrids are complex circuits which consist of a number of interconnected transistors, resistors, capacitors, silicon chips, & other electronic components mounted on a ceramic substrate. They are typically used in complex electronic systems. Here, gold wire is used to make connections from an integrated circuits (a silicon chip) to surrounding parts of the circuit.
