A substrate is provided having a plurality of sheets. Each sheet has a first major surface containing a plurality of electrically conductive regions and a second major surface that opposes the first major surface. The sheets are arranged such that the first major surface of a sheet faces the second major surface of another. At least one electrically conductive region of each sheet is partially or fully exposed. At least one electrically conductive region of a sheet is partially or fully covered, e.g., by one or more electrically conductive regions of another sheet. A method for forming such a substrate is also provided.
