          Appeal No. 1997-2164                                                        
          Application No. 08/277,468                                                  


          that the enclosure is a vacuum package enclosure.                           
               Accordingly, we find that the Examiner has not set forth               
          a prima face case as neither Guillotin nor Oeschger teaches or              
          suggests a ceramic feedthrough brazed to a vacuum package                   
          enclosure.  Thus, we will not sustain the rejection of claims               
          1, 3, 6, 7 and 13 under 35 U.S.C.  103 as being unpatentable               
          over Guillotin and Oeschger.                                                
               Similarly, we will not sustain the rejection of claims 6               
          through 8 and 17 under 35 U.S.C.  103 as being unpatentable                
          over Mizuhara, Oeschger and Guillotin.                                      
               Finally, we will not sustain the rejection of claim 5                  
          under 35 U.S.C.  103 as being unpatentable over Mizuhara,                  
          Oeschger and Bowsky.  Claim 5 is dependent upon claim 1.  We                
          do not find that Bowsky teaches ceramic feedthrough brazed to               
          a vacuum package enclosure.  Accordingly we will not sustain                
          the rejection of claim 5 under 35 U.S.C.  103.                             


               In view of the foregoing we reverse the rejections of                  
          claims 1 through 9 and 11 through 19 under 35 U.S.C.  103.                 
                                      REVERSED                                        


                                         15
