functional test fixturesAdvancements made in the technology used in telecommunications, medical equipment, and other essential industries have demanded that similar advancements are made in the world of functional test solutions. Technology manufacturers have pushed the boundaries of electronics and equipment for use in commercial, industrial, and consumer applications. They rely on functional test fixtures to ensure the quality of the products that they create. Research and development departments, along with production lines and other industry manufacturers, all use custom functional testing solutions throughout the design, manufacture, and post-production processing. While there are many standard options required by specific industries and government regulations, it is the advanced work that we do in our custom division that has made the most significant impact on industry development.

With Whom Do We Work?

Back in the day, EMC Technologies began as a world-class functional test fixturing company with a focus on the functional test needs of the military. Since our launch, we have expanded our customer base to include a mix of military, military contractor, and commercial clients. Today we design and manufacture discretely wired and wireless functional test fixtures and functional test interface equipment that is designed to test printed circuit boards (PCBs) and assemblies for a vast array of applications. Many of the recent commercial applications that we have worked on include groundbreaking work in the area of many different industries. Some of those industries include medical equipment, networking and telecommunications, computer servers, and satellite TV/IP.

Our team is also especially proud of the work that we have done in the development of highly customized interface test adapters (ITAs) to support multinational missile programs for our military clients and military airplane programs. We believe strongly that by maintaining a diverse group of demanding clients and working on challenging products enables us to stay current with the latest testing advancements. Some of the specific areas of proficiency also include high speed, tight tolerances, test racks, temperature, and radio frequency (RF) test fixtures. We are excited to provide our clients with custom functional testing solutions that are designed to meet their unique needs and requirements correctly.

Why Does Custom Matter?

The customizations that we create for our clients work to help them define new standards as we work together to develop new test procedures for new technology. From special requirements to meet the needs of RF functional testing and other unique functional test solutions to advanced specifications for changes to standards for functional test fixtures and interface test adapters, our partnership with clients helps us both to succeed. The continued work that we do in the area of custom development helps to advance our abilities in discretely wired and wireless functional testing as a whole.

Our team of engineers and technicians work with many different industries to the benefit of all clients due to our diversified technology experience. Some of the factors that influence the trends and advancements in one industry can be beneficial in a completely separate area. We are proud of the groundbreaking work we have been able to accomplish through the projects that we have worked on for our clients. One example of this is the wireless functional testing and custom functional testing solutions that have been instrumental in the development of 5G technology, which goes hand-in-hand with advances made to Wi-Fi and Internet of Things (IoT) development.

What Do We Do?

At EMC Technologies, our engineers believe strongly that the sooner we can start working with clients in the development and design phase of a project, the more we can help them throughout the entire production process. With all of the emergent technology that is in demand by consumers and industries alike, our team has been challenged to design custom functional test fixtures that can keep up with the demand. Our clients need functional test solutions that can provide the required signals quickly, accurately, and with consistent repeatability for best results. Some manufacturers require multiple box test systems that they can use in development, while others demand a completely custom solution.

For every new product, device, and industry-standard, our clients require custom developments for wireless functional testing that can stand up to industry and government regulations. Our functional test division can work up user-specific RF functional testing and wireless functional test fixtures based on the client’s unique needs. Custom testing also needs to address legacy technologies while looking forward to future requirements for industry verifications. Building these solutions on flexible platforms helps them to be easily upgraded to meet any new technology and standards as they develop.
