Exatron advanced designed Direct Contact Refrigeration Thermal Testing System, is better than an electronic Peltier or a thermal forcing thermal stream forced air system.
New! Thermal IC Test System

New to the market: An Exatron advanced design direct contact refrigeration thermal testing system. When a cheap electronic Peltier is just not good enough, and when your thermal stream forced air type is too expensive, too difficult, or freezes your board, creates static, or other issues, it's time to consider something new. Exatron's thermal test system provides a great new standard of virtually frost free high performance with only middle-of-the-road costs and no expensive fluids to buy or spill. Available now!
