Claim of US Patent No. 11,071,220


1. A feedthrough assembly, comprising:a housing part having at least two openings; and
at least one conductor embedded in a glass or a glass ceramic material that is fed into each of the respective openings, each conductor having a substantially round cross section in a glazing area and a rectangular cross section in at least one of a first region or a second region located at least one of above or below the glazing area to form a part of a flat conductor having rectangular regions, the parts of the flat conductor arranged at least one of above or below the glazing area being joined adjacent to one another to result in a cumulative flat conductor having a rectangular common cross section with a total width expansion that extends over the at least two openings, and a diameter of the at least two openings is smaller than a width of each rectangular region of the respective part of the flat conductor,
wherein the width is measured perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of the at least one conductor and the rectangular cross section defines a thickness that is measured perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the at least one conductor and is perpendicular relative to the width, the width being 3 to 7 times the thickness.
