custom functional testAt EMC Technologies, we are proud to serve a diverse array of industries and create innovative custom test solutions explicitly designed to meet their growing needs. Every member of our team receives continuous training to ensure that we stay ahead of the curve when it comes to state-of-the-art design and experience with the ever-changing technology and demands for custom functional test. We take pride in the loyalty that we have earned from our clients who come to us with their test challenges. Together we face industry changes for printed circuit board testing that includes smaller targets, faster speeds, new technologies, more company outsourcing, and a demand for mobile and universal test station solutions that provide cost-effective options in the lab, on the production floor, and in the field.

Military and Military Contractor Clients

In the beginning, we worked primarily as a custom functional test developer for military and defense contractors. We are ITAR registered and have many years of experience working with the functional test needs of the military. Currently, we work with a mix of military, military contractors, and commercial customers. We believe that this diversity has helped us to become more adept at meeting the growing demands of all our clients across multiple industries for discretely wired and wireless functional testing for printed circuit board across many different applications. We still work closely with our military and defense clients, developing highly custom interface test adapters (ITAs) to support a variety of military airplane programs and multinational missile programs.

While our new experience with commercial clients has helped us to stay up on the latest technologies for our military contracts, we feel that it goes both ways. Our many years of working to meeting the demands of military and defense clients have allowed us to be more flexible and willing to think “outside the box” for our clients who serve the telecommunications, networking, medical, computer server, and satellite TV/IP industries. Throughout the years, we have become extremely proficient in the areas of high speed, tight tolerance, test racks, RF test fixtures, and temperature, all of which are highly sought after skills for many different applications. We have earned a solid reputation for our custom test solutions and are delighted to receive referrals from our satisfied clients for new projects.

Custom Turn-Key Solutions

In addition to our custom functional test work for specific industries, we also offer options that include turn-key solutions that can be used across multiple technologies to maximize the return on investment. We stock a full line of mass interconnect test products that include kits, blocks, and receivers. We also see a wide range of functional test products designed for VXI and PXI applications that utilize Agilent, Virginia Panel, Teradyne, and other interface connectors as their platforms. Many of our clients appreciate the opportunity to get the best of both worlds with standard equipment and custom test solutions support for electrical and manufacturing work for their test interface needs.

Our facility features a fully-equipped machine shop and electro-mechanical assembly department so we can take on any project in-house without delay. Our shop is capable of managing even the most demanding requirements. We have compiled a team of highly trained and experienced mechanical, electrical, and printed circuit board engineers and technicians who all work with the latest design tools and equipment. Even our sales team is made up of a combination of sales engineers, applications engineers, and technical project managers so we can hit the ground running at the very beginning of each project to offer custom test solutions and options designed specifically for the needs of the client.

Partner With EMC Technologies

Our customers consider our team to be a partner in their test challenges. We listen to their needs, continue to seek and develop the best talent available, and continue investing in the latest technological advances to best meet the requirements of our clients. We offer a wide range of services designed to help our customers achieve their goals. Mobile and universal test station options, printed circuit board design and assembly, machining and prototyping, as well as contract and engineering services all give us the unique ability to provide comprehensive support to our clients. Our experienced and professionally trained technicians have the skills and background required to fabricate just about anything we might need to create a custom functional test.

We view the printed circuit board as an integral component of the interface test adapter, which is why we design and manufacture them in-house for our clients. Greater signal integrity and repeatability, significantly reduced debugging time, faster and more cost-effective exact duplicates of ITAs, and improved organization are just some of the benefits that we have experienced. Designs can be accomplished directly from the client’s requirements or developed entirely by our team. Printed circuit board designs are available in either Allegro or PADS format and include simple double-sided to intricate multi-layer designs.
