There are many different types of solutions used with the design and manufacture of functional test fixtures. EMC Technologies has many years of experience working in the development of testing solutions for industry. Our team of engineers and technicians work to provide services for many different industries, ranging from military and defense to telecommunications and networking. This diverse background and unique range of challenges have helped us to stay on the cutting edge of the electronic test industry. In particular, our work overcoming unique requirements and situations, as well as our development of complex printed circuit boards and interface test adapters, have helped to increase the value that we provide to our customers.
Components of Functional Testing
The functional test fixtures that we develop for our clients are as unique as the products that they are designed to test. Depending on the unit under test (UUT) and any industry requirements, the test can be a standalone solution or part of a rack-based system. Our team works with mobile and universal test station developments, as well as test-specific stations, based on the needs of the client. Some of the work that we have done with standalone testing include Halt/Haas stations for temperature and vibration, active and passive electronic loads and load simulators, product and component handler and motion stations, and highly advanced solutions. Test stations that are EMI, RF, and EMC compliant, as well as mechanical-only holding, non-contract, infra-red, laser, and barcode stations, are among some of the specifications that we have completed for our clients.
While some providers within the electronic test industry outsource design and manufacturing, we complete all of our work in-house, preferring to work directly with the client to accommodate all of their needs. Our work with custom functional test fixtures have helped us to stand out from our competitors and allow us to provide valuable testing solutions for industry. The basic components of a functional tester includes both hardware and software. The physical cabinet, interface test adapters that connect the device to be tested, cabling to connect instruments, and of course the CPU and monitors, depending on the product itself. The software works as the operating system to make all of the functions and tool sets work as they should to complete the test as it is required. The development environment is also essential for success, anticipating how, why, and where the intended end-user will operate the completed device.
Testing Solutions for Industry
At EMC Technologies, we are proud to serve a remarkably diverse array of customers across many unique industries. While we initially began as a functional test fixturing company that focused on developing interface adapters and solutions for military and defense clients, we have since evolved to include a variety of clients, serving military, military contractor, aerospace, and commercial industry. Some of the work that we do on a regular basis includes the design and manufacture of wireless and discretely wired functional test fixtures and interface test equipment for satellite TV/IP, medical, networking, telecommunications, computer servers, and consumer products. We have also created highly custom interface test adapters to support military airplane programs and multinational missile programs for our military clients.
We strongly believe that our work with such unique and demanding clients has helped us stay current with the latest testing advancements and remain ahead of the curve regarding testing solutions for industry. Some areas of proficiency among our team of engineers and technicians include overcoming issues like tight-tolerances, test racks, radiofrequency test fixtures, high-speed, and temperature. Our staff consists of a team of mechanical, electrical, and printed circuit board engineers and technicians who all work with the latest design tools and equipment at our state-of-the-art facility in Southeastern Massachusetts. Even our sales support group includes sales engineers, applications engineers, and technical project managers to best serve our clients. Every member of our team, from sales to testing, receives continuous training to ensure their expertise in the ever-changing technologies inherent in the functional test fixtures and electronic test industry.
