Abstract

Multi-Spring Box

   The packing of chip banks is usually performed with
an individual "spring-box" which contains a stack of 12 chiptrays.
Each individual spring-box is inserted in a pocket of an egg-crate (6
or 12 pockets per egg-crate) as shown in Fig. 1.

   The conventional "spring-box" of Fig. 1 has been recently
improved by a box called the "multi-spring box" which is shown in
Fig. 2.  It is comprised of 6 spring-boxes whose joints are soldered
to produce an assembly with the possibility of clamping two
assemblies by clips to arrive at the same packing as in the
conventional solution.  The advantages are significant in terms of
costs (eliminating the need of egg-crates) and of processing time
(the egg-crate filling step is no longer needed).
