          Appeal No. 94-3349                                                          
          Application 07/757,085                                                      

          Blonder to connect the electrodes in Kubo.  We disagree.  As both           
          Blonder and Kubo teach structures in which a chip is electrically           
          connected to another member, it would have been obvious to use              
          the grooves or protrusions disclosed in Blonder in the Kubo                 
          device to obtain a reliable cold-welded bond and to overcome the            
          problems associated with solder bonds (Col. 2, lines 8-34).                 
          In view of the foregoing, the decision of the examiner                      
          rejecting claims 9, 10, 33, 34 and 36-40 under 35 U.S.C.  103 is           
          affirmed.                                                                   
          No time period for taking any subsequent action in                          
          connection with this appeal may be extended under 37 CFR                    
          1.136(a).
