Subject: Can HASS replace Burn-in
Reasons to replace burn-in on PCB or higher assembly level with HASS are said as follows. Burn-in is not effective today because component failure rate have improved by orders of magnitude. Other screens, such as all-axis vibration and high-rate thermal cycling, are vastly more cost effective today than burn-in on PCB or higher assembly level. What do you think of their opinion?
