Abstract

One end of a spring 10 may be secured to the back end of a hole 12 by attaching that end of the spring 10 to a plastic plug 14 that is thereafter force-fitted into the hole. The other end of the spring 10 is attached to a piston 16 that makes thermal contact to a semiconductor substrate 18 to conduct heat away from the substrate.
