Test Report (Shock and Vibration)

Introduction

Vibration Test Setup

Secure attachment of a heat sink to a chip or PCB is a very important aspect of the mechanical design. We offer variety of attachment methods including tape, push pins, Z-Clips, and shoulder screws. In an effort to provide our customers with detailed support data, we contracted with an independent laboratory to conduct shock and vibration tests for all of the various attachment methods we currently offer.
