Businesses that only require an “off the shelf” solution for functional test fixtures might not care where they purchase their functional test interface. However, if you work in an industry where custom test solutions are needed, you will want to be a bit more choosy. It pays to find a service that employs a team of highly trained, experienced, and knowledgeable engineers, designers, and technicians to provide you with the best options for a custom functional test. Printed circuit board (PCB) experience and a solid reputation for delivering top quality results should also be a priority when considering who to hire for development and production.
Wide Range of Design Capabilities
When you need custom test solutions, it is important to work with a service that has a wide range of design capabilities to provide you with everything you need, from simple to extremely complex functional testing. The engineers behind the development of custom functional test fixtures need to have an extensive, in-depth knowledge of mechanical design, precision machining, and printed circuit board (PCB) test methods. The relationship should start by working together to evaluate your specific needs and requirements for innovative, functional test interface solutions.
EMC Technologies works with a diverse selection of clients to design and manufacture wired and wireless functional test interface equipment for printed circuit board (PCB) and assembly testing for a variety of different applications. While our original focus was primarily on developing world-class functional test fixturing for the needs of the military and defense industries, today we serve many commercial industries. Our team has a lot of experience developing groundbreaking work in support of many different clients that work in the medical field, networking and telecommunications, computer servers, and satellite TV/IP industries, as well as for consumer electronics. We strongly believe that our diverse background and experience helps us to provide better services for our customers.
Proficient in Relevant Areas
While searching for a service that can provide you with custom functional test solutions designed specifically to meet the demands of your industry, it helps to find a company that is proficient in the areas that are most relevant to your business. Printed circuit board (PCB) design and manufacturing is a crucial area for many manufacturers, so it is hugely beneficial to work with a company that has a lot of experience and knowledge in this area. If your business requires highly customized interface test adapters (ITAs) to support developmental programs, you should search to find a company that can provide you with all of the solutions and services necessary to get the job done right without relying on sub-contracted work.
EMC Technologies works on a lot of different projects for custom test solutions; however, we are extremely proficient in the areas of high-speed, temperature, tight tolerance, test racks, and RF test fixtures due to the work that we have done for other clients. While we do stock a full line of mass interconnect test products, including receivers, kits, and blocks, we also sell a full line of functional test products for VXI and PXI applications. Some of the platforms that we use include Agilent, Teradyne, and Virginia Panel, as well as other interface connectors. For our customers who know what they want and don’t require design and manufacturing for a custom functional test, we can combine these components according to your needs to create custom test solutions as a full turn-key option for all of your functional test interface needs.
A Fully-Equipped Machine Shop
One of the most significant benefits associated with using EMC Technologies for all of your custom functional test design and manufacturing is that we also have a fully-equipped machine shop and electro-mechanical assembly department, which is capable of managing the most demanding requirements. Our team of engineers and technicians are highly trained and experienced in the areas of mechanical, electrical, and printed circuit board (PCB), working with the latest design tools and equipment. Even our sales department goes above and beyond to meet the needs of our customers. Our sales team is made up of sales engineers, applications engineers, and technical project managers.
