But why it is called Magic Steam any explanation to that ,any specific composition of that smoke that makes Mr,Rob define it like this or its only this that it happens due to fumes(because fine wires burn) within the chip that become stuck in a closed frame and blast out?


As sth77 points out it's an in-joke; there's no actual steam or smoke inside the chips....OR IS THERE?????

I once saw a power transistor in a TO-220 package that we'd temporarily soldered onto the board without its heatsink for a "quick" test desolder itself and fall onto the floor when the test went a little too long.


I have experience in blasting that too. :smiley-mr-green: :smiley-mr-green:

I feel sorry for the poor chip. I did a project 15 year ago. I was building a PSU display board and here a picture.

I don't why I keep it. Hmm... recycle the parts, maybe.
