Practical Electronic Packaging - Definitive Manual Needed

Discussion in 'General Electronics' started by Sanjay Mishra, Feb 4, 2004.

  1. Hello Everybody:
    I am an electronics engineer. While I know quite a lot about
    electronics and embedded software I feel that I am quite clueless
    about the the mechanical aspects - things like nuts, washers, water
    proofing of enclosures.

    Is there a definitive reference for the practical mechanical packaging
    aspects of electronics? Such a reference would address issues like

    - where it is possible use plastic screws instead of mechanical screws
    - what the heck do washers actually do (as I mentioned earlier I am
    quite clueless)
    - why do screws have different types of heads - phillips, straight and
    all those weird shapes

    - how does rubber tubing water proof an enclosure, what kind can be
    used
    - how does plastic hold up to UV radiation
    - is it possible to get a RF shielding plastic

    Any help would be appreciated. I looked all over Amazon but could not
    find anything.

    Thanks
    Sanjay
