One of the many industries that we work with at EMC Technologies is the telecom or telecommunications industry. Tied in very closely with many of the same goals, devices, equipment, and regulations, is the networking industry. A lot of the custom test solutions that we develop for our clients fall into these two categories. Functional test fixtures are used to test a product, device, part, component, or piece of equipment after it has been manufactured to ensure that it works as it should. We design and manufacture discretely wired and wireless functional test fixtures for the electronic test industry. Our custom functional test fixtures are used to verify performance for printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic assemblies.
As a result of our vast experience working with such a diverse pool of clients, we have been able to create custom test solutions that meet or exceed the expectations of our customers. We have done work with satellite TV/IP clients, assisted with custom functional test manufacturing for computer services, and have experience working with the medical healthcare industry as well. As an ITAR Registered company, we also have experience working with military, aerospace, and defense contractors. It is because of our continued work with these varied industries that we are able to be more innovative in our designs for functional test fixtures to meet the ever-changing needs of the telecom and networking industries.
Interface Test Adapters
Another area where we excel is in the development of highly customized ITAs or interface test adapters. These are used to support our clients, particularly telecom, aerospace, and subcontracted military programs. The demands of these customers and growing technology in networking, wireless communications, and the electronic test industry as a whole have helped us to stay current with the latest testing strategies. Some of the interface test adapters that we have created to work with our custom functional test development include custom backplane printed circuit board (PCB) with power and ground connections. We have also worked extensively with custom utility board PCBs that feature additional loads, relays, and other unique customizations.
Our team can provide a broad range of options with regard to interface test adapters and functional test fixtures, including removable access panels and redundant interface, which provides multiple connections to a single point. Whatever our clients need, whether it is for the telecommunications or networking industries, or for another growing tech industry, our team can deliver custom test solutions designed to meet their demands. We take pride in being able to go above and beyond to create custom functional test solutions that help our clients to stay ahead of their competitors and make quick adjustments to prototypes that allow for more reliable manufacturing of consumer and commercial goods.
Flexible Test Systems
Our clients who work in the areas of telecommunications, data, and networking will often require custom test solutions that are extremely flexible and adaptable to high-volume or complicated testing situations. Other options are required for different industries, such as a more rigorous validation and acceptance testing for the medical industry and co-development of functional test fixtures for hardware and software companies to enable time, cost, and test constraints. As a result, all of these industries are often best served by mobile computer-based test stations, which have the ability to offer a variety of test solutions at an affordable cost.
Some of the advantages associated with using mobile functional test fixtures include:
- built-in computer, monitor, and test interfaces for all-in-one testing
- modular interfaces for electrical and mechanical testing
- integration of boxed parts and components to reduce costs
- built-in fiber optic and networking capabilities
- maximized use of the test floor area
- designed-in fast access to all inside resources for adaptability
- designed expansion areas that feature simple adapter panels and plates
