When it comes to the development of RF functional testing equipment and functional test fixtures, you have choices. However, if you need wired and wireless test interface equipment that is reliable and repeatable, it pays to work with the best. EMC Technologies designs and manufactures functional test interface equipment for a variety of industries. The telecom, networking, medical, computer servers, and satellite TV/IP industries are just a few of the businesses that we serve.
Our team has recently participated in groundbreaking work for commercial applications in some of these industries. We have also developed highly custom interface test adapters (ITAs) for military, aerospace, and multi-national missile programs. We are excited to work with so many diverse industries and clients, as it helps to keep us current with the latest advancements and industry trends. Some of the areas where we are extremely proficient include high-speed, tighter tolerance, test racks, temperature, and RF functional testing fixtures.
RF Circuit Assemblies
Our design team has worked with clients to develop a variety of test adaptors and test stations for use with testing RF circuit assemblies and microwave sub-assemblies. The techniques and strategies that we use for these designs include a couple of different elements. RF silicone is used to isolate the UUT from electromagnetic interference. Also, we use a complete six-sided metal enclosure sealed with EMI shielded gaskets with the RF silicone for full protection.
Semi-rigid triple shielded coax tensolite cables and rigid coax cables, which are characterized by lab, are incorporated into our designs. We also utilize SMA and BNC connectors, RF rotary switches, RF power sensors, and coax switches. Concerning printed circuit boards or PCBs, we use matched impedance traces in our PCB design and fabricate our PCBs with Rogers Material. However, we surpass our competitors when it comes to our custom design work. For example, of the many different RF functional testing projects that we have completed, we have designed and built custom wage guide adapters.
Functional Test Products
In addition to our custom design and manufacturing, EMC Technologies also keeps products in stock for RF functional testing and functional test interface. We have a full line of mass interconnect test products, which includes kits, receivers, and blocks. We can also provide a full line of functional test products, designed for VXI and PXI applications. As far as functional test interfaces, the products we stock utilize Virginia Panel, Agilent, Teradyne, and other interface/connectors as platforms. For our clients who request a full turn-key solution, we can supply all of the equipment and offer all of the support for electrical and manufacturing.
Equipment & Engineering
Our facility features a complete state-of-the-art machine shop that is fully equipped with all of the latest tools and equipment for the industry. Our electro-mechanical assembly department is capable of taking on even the most demanding requirements from our clients. We created a team of highly trained, educated, and experienced individuals, which includes mechanical, electrical, and PCB engineers and technicians. Even our sales team and support services are made up of technical project managers, sales engineers, and applications engineers.
Because every single member of our team knows the ins and outs of RF functional testing design and manufacturing, we can meet or exceed the expectations of our clients. Our project managers serve as the communication and coordination link between our clients and all of our essential departments. This helps everyone from sales to work better with design and engineering, which in turn assists our testing departments. So whether you require custom work for RF circuit assemblies or a standard functional test interface, we can get the job done effectively and efficiently.
