Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,122

1. An apparatus comprising:a component operatively coupled to an interface, the interface comprised of a resilient material;
responsive to exposure of the interface to a thermal event of at least a first temperature, the resilient material configured to change from a first state to a second state, the second state including a physical transformation of the resilient material; and
the transformation to change a position of the component from a first position to a second position, wherein the position change of the component includes a separation of the component from a substrate.
