TestConX is the preeminent event for test consumables, test cell integration, and test operations. Its program scope has expanded over its 20-year history to help connect electronic test professional to solutions. The event covers a variety of topics, with technical sessions ranging from power and battery applications, high speed & high frequency to materials and thermal, among others. There is an optional turorial on Sunday, March 5 that covers mm waves vs. test sockets, with a keynote on Monday titled, “Mixed Reality: The Metavers and What it Means to Test Engineering.” The Expo provides opportunity for visitors to meet exhibitors such as Backer Hotwatt, with representatives available at booth #31 to speak with people curious about heating solutions—standard and custom—for their test measurement needs.

Rigorous testing allows engineers to reliably gauge the design, material, function efficiency, and to predict the life-of-product time span for semiconductors. Burn-in testing/test sockets require exacting parameters along with precise and dependable temperature control. Backer Hotwatt Superwatt and SunRod cartridge heaters work exceptionally well for test socket applications. Backer Hotwatt products are made in the USA and provide durable, dependable performance.

Jamie Holley, president of Backer Hotwatt, says, “We enjoy meeting people at TestConX and talking with them about the many heating options available for their test measurement requirements. We’ve been manufacturing custom heating solutions for decades and are very confident that our our broad technology, experience, and deep bench of knowledgeable engineers will deliver the right solutions to those in the semiconductor sector. I invite people to stop by booth #31 and ask us any questions they may have.”
