IC Component Socketsby Weifeng Liu
Synopses & Reviews
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 subjectincluding materials, design, performance characteristics, failure modes and mechanisms, and qualification and reliability assessmentwith emphasis on the technologys inherent advantages and challenges.
Topics of interest include:
Including a list of standards and specifications, this book is an important and timely resource for todays electronics engineers concerned with evaluating and perfecting socket design, manufacture, and use.
Book News Annotation:
A comprehensive reference on all aspects of integrated circuit (IC) socket technology. It's intended mainly for IC managers and engineers who need specific and detailed information about sockets but are bewildered by the variety and scope of contact designs and features. Component socket properties and materials are covered, as well as component sockets for PTH, J-Leaded, Gull-Wing, BGA and LGA packages, failure modes and mechanisms, socket testing and qualification, and a section on reliability assessment.
