Connections between conductive layers in printed wiring circuits are normally made by mechanically drilling and plating holes through the layers. As the packing densities of printed-circuit (PC) boards increase, mechanical drilling becomes more difficult. In addition, blind holes or vias to a buried layer are often necessary and are difficult to achieve mechanically.1
