What is a "burn-in-board" (BIB) loading system?

"Burn-in" is a crucial procedure employed in the semiconductor industry to subject semiconductor components to rigorous temperature stress testing. The primary objective of this process is to identify and detect any potential failures stemming from design, material, process, or manufacturing defects at an early stage.

During the burn-in process, temperatures ranging from 125 °C to 250 °C (257 °F to 482 °F) are meticulously applied and sustained for several hours, and in some cases, even days. This carefully controlled thermal environment allows for comprehensive evaluation and validation of the components, ensuring their reliability and performance under extreme operating conditions.
