Integrated circuit (IC) and component socket accessories are normally used in combination with IC sockets for installing and protecting sockets on printed circuit boards (PCBs). Accessories include heat sinks, IC socket adapters, IC socket covers, and IC socket hardware. Socket hardware includes items such as bolster assemblies, backplates, independent loading mechanism (ILM) assemblies and ILM kits. These accessories are commonly used in applications such as desktop and notebook computers, high-performance computing, and servers.


In servers, the hardware system provides better alignment and keeps fingers away from the socket contact field. In data center switch and storage systems and other control systems, our heat sink help keep electronics from overheating thus maintaining better performance.
