A survey was conducted on the physical properties of several new ceramic systems, such as carbides, borides, oxides, and nitrides, as they appeared in recent literature, and they are briefly reviewed. A few new ceramic materials, such as BeO, BN, AlN, and SiC-BeO, possess superior thermal properties when compared to the alumina (Al2 O3 ) ceramics used in electronic packaging. Among these, the aluminum nitride (AlN) has emerged as unique material that can replace alumina in future electronic packaging for improved thermal performance and reliability.
