There are certain situations when clients require assistance with the custom design and manufacture of printed circuit boards. At EMC Technologies, we offer a wide range of services concerning the work necessary for printed circuit board testing and development. The designs that we create for our customers can be engineered to accommodate specific requirements, ranging from a simple double-sided unit to more complex, multi-layer designs, based on the customers’ needs. Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers who work with PCB design and manufacturing on a regular basis can create custom designs for clients directly from their specifications, or we can also develop PCBs and PCB test fixtures entirely in-house. We provide PCB designs to our clients in either PADS or Allegro format, depending on their requirements.
Why We Do PCB Design In-House
As part of our commitment to providing customers with comprehensive services and solutions for the development and manufacture of functional test fixtures, we utilize the design of PCBs as an integral component of the interface test adapter used in our electronic test industry solutions. Having the ability to offer PCB design and manufacturing in-house by our team of PCB engineers and technicians helps us to be even more valuable to our customers and provide better solutions. In addition, we find that functional test interface and PCB test fixtures improvements can also be achieved through in-house manufacturing of printed circuit boards and PCB test fixtures.
Some of the other benefits associated with this practice of developing custom printed circuit board testing solutions and PCB manufacturing includes greater signal integrity and repeatability. This helps to reduce debugging time and results in faster, less expensive exact duplicates of interface test adapters. Even more, PCB design and assembly helps us to improve the organization of relays, power and ground busses, and signal conditioning components. When used as a part of a connector saver adapter card, these practices have helped us to make marked improvements with ease of maintenance for high-volume testing. We take pride in being able to meet or exceed expectations when it comes to the function test, and functional test interface solutions that we design and manufacture for our clients.
Improved PCB Test Strategies
Having a team of experienced PCB engineers and technicians on staff helps us excel in the work we do to develop and manufacture reliable and comprehensive PCB test strategies. Functional test interface solutions for printed circuit board testing helps us to ensure improved performance across the board. We also offer full in-house machining and metal fabricating services, which allow us to fabricate nearly any machined part. This means we can create everything from basic aluminum pieces to complicated, tight-tolerance parts, perform prototyping, and run high-volume parts for our customers in addition to PCB design and manufacturing. This makes our services even more valuable to our clients, moving way beyond the basic options provided by other electronic test industry solutions.
The work that we do at EMC Technologies goes far beyond the basic box approach used by many contract designers and manufacturers. By providing our customers with full-service contract design and manufacturing in its true meaning, we help them achieve their goals in a more efficient and cost-effective manner to stay on-time and on budget. One of the reasons for our success is that we address each project as a complete system, from the initial design and manufacture of PCB test fixtures to considerations for functional test interface solutions. We consider package limitations, interfacing conditions, issues with dimensioning and tolerance, environmental constraints, and any mounting requirements. This approach has helped us to produce manufacturable world-class designs more effectively.
Custom PCB Design and Manufacturing
If you need support for custom PCB design and manufacturing, consider working with EMC Technologies for all of your functional test development needs. We can provide complete electro-mechanical assembly services, along with PCB design, fabrication, assembly, and comprehensive printed circuit board testing at our Southeastern Massachusetts facility. Our experience ranges from working with advanced military and defense, aerospace, and industrial clients to the development of PCB test fixtures and functional test interface solutions for consumer products. If you would like to learn more about our services or wish to speak with one of our team members, give us a call at 508-672-0808. We are ITAR Registered, ISO 9001: 2015 Certified, and highly experienced in the area of custom functional testing and PCB design and manufacturing.
