About this Book

A broad and practical reference to IC socket technology

The first and only comprehensive resource on IC (Integrated Circuit) socket technology, IC Component Sockets offers a complete overview of socket technology and design in order to provide engineers and their managers with a good understanding of these specialized technologies and the processes for evaluating them. The authors, both acknowledged experts in the field, address all relevant aspects of the subject-including materials, design, performance characteristics, failure modes and mechanisms, and qualification and reliability assessment-with emphasis on the technology's inherent advantages and challenges.

Topics of interest include:
* Socket design and contact technologies
* Performance characteristics and material properties
* Contact failure modes and mechanisms
* Qualification testing conditions
* Qualification sequences and setup
* IEEE prediction methodology
* Theoretical calculation of contact reliability

Including a list of standards and specifications, this book is an important and timely resource for today's electronics engineers concerned with evaluating and perfecting socket design, manufacture, and use.
