Miniature electrochemical sensors can be produced by thick-film technology. The optimal properties of thick-film electrode system, the production technology optimization of thick-film sensors and the adjustment of optimal technological properties are main problems of sensor design. An area of working electrode and an electrode topology design is the important parts of design a optimization of electrode system. The rules for optimization of electrode systems in classical electrochemistry exist. The design of standard thick-film electrode construction is limited (2-D construction, substrate dimensions, resolution, paste parameters ...). Therefore rules for classical electrode systems cannot be used fully in this case and larger electrode area can be making by 3D structure only. One of resolutions is unconventional method. The increase of electrode surface by unconventional method - ball and wire bonding is discussed in this paper. Measurements were done using a standard electrochemical couple of potassium ferrocyanide-ferricyanide and hydrogen peroxide.
