To support our clients in the design and manufacture of custom functional test fixtures, we offer many additional services. One of the services that we provide frequently is printed circuit board design and assembly. Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers can create designs to accommodate a wide range of requirements, ranging from simple double-sided PCBs to complex, multi-layer designs. The designs that we create can be accomplished either directly from the customer’s requirements, or we can develop them entirely in-house based on the client’s needs. Advanced PCB design and manufacturing plays a crucial role in the development of custom test fixture solutions. At EMC Technologies, we are dedicated to ensuring that our PCB test fixtures are of the highest quality.
PCBs and ITAs
Our team uses PCB design and manufacturing as an integral component of the interface test adapter (ITA) for a number of fundamental reasons. By creating PCB test fixtures according to the specific needs of the electronic test industry requirements, we are able to ensure greater signal integrity and repeatability. This works to significantly reduce debugging time and allows us to create faster, less expensive exact duplicates of the ITAs. Other benefits of making printed circuit board design in-house is that it provides the means for improved organization of relays, power and ground busses, and signal conditioning components. As part of a connector saver adapter card, manufacturing PCBs at our facility also helps to improve maintenance for high-volume testing.
To support our goal of providing these supporting services and custom designs in-house, EMC Technologies has a complete in-house machining and metal fabricating shop on-site. Our state-of-the-art machine shop includes CNC milling centers, lathes, knee-mills, drilling equipment, and sheet metal brakes. By having all of this equipment at our facility and a team of skilled technicians who are trained and certified to use it, we are able to fabricate nearly any machined part. Our team can create simple aluminum pieces, as well as complicated, tight-tolerance parts. We are also able to perform prototyping services and run high-volume parts in-house. Our services can support the development and manufacture of complete turn-key projects as well, including engineering services and assembly, as well as “build to print” machined prototypes.
PCB Design and Manufacturing
At EMC Technologies, our engineering and design staff goes far beyond the basic box approach used by many contract designers and manufacturers. When it comes to test fixture solutions and the development of printed circuit board design and manufacturing, we provide full-service contract engineering and production in its true meaning. We address each product as a complete system instead of as mere parts or components. This includes the evaluation of package limitations, dimensioning and tolerance issues, interfacing conditions, mounting requirements, and any environmental constraints. We focus on the intended use of the project, the end-user, and how, where, and when it will be used in order to help our clients achieve all of their production goals.
We are able to apply our mastery in electro-mechanical design to support PCB design and manufacturing for our clients. Some of the industries that utilize our services include military and defense, military subcontractors, avionics, medical, communications, networking, aerospace, and other industrial markets. Our training, experience, and skilled team of engineers and technicians allow us to produce manufacturable world-class designs more efficiently. Printed circuit board design, fabrication, assembly, and testing are all essential to the work that we do for our clients to create PCB test fixtures that will provide testing solutions based on the project’s requirements.
