Abstract

Numerous Power life test trays were manufac- tured using a standard TO-220 sockets for insertion mount devices. The increased emphasis on Surface Surface mount socket adapter. Manufacture a cir- cuit board with snap out case outlines adapters of Mount Power Products devices dictate that the vari- ous SMD be soldered to PC. Boards prior to life test, electrical characterization, or high/low temper- ature electrical measurements. Replacing existing life test trays is both expensive and a long lead time item. Mounting units on multiple circuit boards cre- ates problems in board rework when analysis is required.
