All hybrids are composites of just two hybrid designs - one 2-chip
hybrid design and one 3-chip hybrid design. See
below how each of
the hybrid types are layed out. When two hybrid designs are put
together to make one hybrid, all 30 signal traces on the left
boundary of the right hybrid meet all 30 signal traces on the right
boundary of the left hybrid to form a "highway" all the way
across the hybrid. All 30 signals branch off of the highway
to each chip and to each connector field.
