1. A device for supporting at least one integrated circuit component, comprising:

  • a base surface;

    a plurality of generally planar surfaces extending away from the base surface at an oblique angle relative to the base surface, the planar surfaces establishing a component receiving pocket;

    at least one interruption comprising at least a bump in the planar surfaces for contacting an edge on a component received in the pocket to limit movement of the component relative to the planar surfaces, the planar surfaces having a first portion extending between the interruption and an inside edge near the base surface, the first portions operating as support surfaces for supporting a component in the pocket such that the component is spaced from the base surface, the planar surfaces having a second portion extending away from the interruption in an opposite direction from the first portion.
