Harold Hamilton founded Micro Control Company in 1972 as a manufacturer of test equipment for the electronics industry. The microprocessor-controlled test system produced in 1973 was the first in the industry. Today, the tradition continues with Micro Control Company’s high-power burn-in and test systems which are being shipped to customers throughout the world.
Along with high-power burn-in systems for logic and memory applications, Micro Control Company designs and builds burn-in boards and other burn-in accessories for use during reliability or production burn-in applications.
