Title: Component carrier having high strength pocket

Abstract: A component carrier for holding a component includes a carrier substrate and a pocket recessed in the substrate for holding the component in its interior. The pocket has a wall and a floor, and the wall includes a series of elongated arcuate channels. The channels are concave relative to the pocket interior and extend substantially perpendicular to the pocket floor. The wall is substantially flat between the channels. A substantially continuous pedestal projects from the pocket floor. The pedestal has (i) an upper surface for supporting the component, (ii) a pair of support walls extending from the pocket floor and terminating in the support surface, and (iii) a notched portion intermediate the pedestal and defined by a lateral support member extending between the support walls and spaced from the pocket floor, for absorbing lateral components of compressive forces applied to the pedestal.
