Abstract of the Disclosure

Novel semiconductor devices comprise a semiconducting body, a plurality of electrodes parallel to each other on one surface of said body, a corresponding number of parallel cross-pieces mounted on a header, the direction of length of each cross-piece being at right angles to the direction of length of the electrodes, the cross-pieces being secured to a corresponding number of terminal posts placed in the header. The cross-pieces may be metal strips, the upper edges of which are connected with the associated electrodes or may be printed conductors. The novel semiconductor devices may be completely manufactured by automatic machinery.
