CLAIMS:

1. A thin-film capacitor comprising an insulating substrate which is provided with at least two inner electrode layers which are separated from each other by means of a dielectric layer, the substrate being also provided with two end contacts each electroconductively contacting one of the two inner electrode layers, characterized in that the capacitor is also provided with breakable electrically conducting connection means which connect both end contacts electrically.

2. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 1, characterized in that the breakable electrically conducting connection means comprise a metal layer.

3. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 2, characterized in that the metal layer forms part of an electrode layer.

4. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 3, characterized in that the metal layer consists substantially of aluminium.

5. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 2, characterized in that the metal layer consists substantially of a metal which dissolves in solder.

6. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 1, characterized in that the electrically conducting connection means comprise a layer of electrically conducting metal compounds which, under the influence of a thermal treatment, are converted into non-conducting metal compounds.

7. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 1, characterized in that the electrically conducting connection means comprise a layer of a low melting point metal alloy having a high surface tension.

8. A thin-film capacitor as claimed in claim 1, characterized in that the capacitor also comprises one or more floating electrode layers which do not electroconductively contact the end contacts.
